Über diesen Titel
The most complex and unexplored relationship in a woman's life is with her father. If their bond is close, she is referred to as "Daddy's little girl." As cute as that may sound in childhood, a "father's daughter" later pays a high price for her favored status. In order to sustain his approval, protection, and love, she often distances herself from her mother and rejects her own feminine nature. By identifying solely with her father, her development as a woman is arrested in daughterhood.
In this unique and fascinating look at a pervasive personal and cultural issue, family therapist Maureen Murdock at last reveals the unspoken truth about daughters and the immense power the fathers they idealize have over them. Fathers' Daughters explores how these exclusive relationships affect every aspect of a woman's life. While fathers' daughters are often high achievers in the outside world, their denial of their innate feminine nature wreaks havoc on other aspects of their lives -- from fearing commitment to recklessly choosing a mate, among a host of other personal and professional problems.
With revealing case studies and an exploration of the hidden truth in myths, dreams, and fairy tales, Fathers' Daughters makes a clear that the rewards for healing the father-daughter relationship are great -- as a woman will learn to take herself seriously, reclaim the authority she projects onto men, and establish a healthy, balanced sense of herself as a woman.
Maureen Murdock is the best-selling author of The Heroine's Journey: Woman's Quest for Wholeness, a ground-breaking work which revealed a broader understanding of the female psyche on both a personal and cultural level and was Murdock's response to Joseph Campbell's A Hero with a Thousand Faces. When Murdock showed Campbell her book, he said, "Women don't need to make the journey." Murdock's readers around the world have shown that he's wrong! A Jungian psychotherapist and creative writing teacher, Murdock is also the author of The Heroine's Journey Workbook, Spinning Inward: Using Guided Imagery with Children, and Unreliable Truth: On Memoir and Memory, a seminal work about memoir and what's involved in writing a memoir. Her books have been translated into over a dozen languages and she lectures internationally. Follow her blog, Hooked on Hope, on www.maureenmurdockblog.com. (2016-06-21)
