The Absent Father Effect on Daughters: Father Desire, Father Wound
November 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The absent father effect is a love story, but an unrequited one. Harm is done due to the presence of the father’s absence, affecting a daughter—and the father–in body, mind, and soul. The father is an essential aspect of the psyche and significant for the daughter’s psychological and physical life, personally and culturally. Topics of the psyche affected by the absent father include the negative father complex, puella archetype and the concept of the animus. The Friday talk will focus on the daughter- father relationship in order to shed light on its lack, symptoms and problems, as well as begin to address its repair.
