Overview

Finding Our Fathers examines the hidden struggle faced by millions of men: how to reconcile their childhood images of their fathers, and all men, as silent, stoic breadwinners with the life they want to live now-embracing two-career marriages, closer ties with their children, and greater emotional awareness. Harvard psychological Samuel Osherman shows how a man's "unfinished business" with his father affects his relationships with his spouce, children, friends, and boss, and how it can lead to a profound sense of loneliness, vulnerability, and rage.

Osherman's work penetrates the shroud of silence that prevents men from coming to terms with their deepest feelings and fears. He shows how every man can resolve the inner conflict of the father-son relationship and begin to develop a new sense of strength and purpose in his family life and career.

This new, thoroughly revised edition of Finding Our Fathers, which became an instant bestseller when originally published in 1986, is the first and most crucial step to finding a more rewarding, more vital masculine identity. It is one of the most important books you'll ever read about your father-or about yourself.

About the Author:
Samuel Osherman, Ph.D., is a practicing psychotherapist of the faculty of Harvard Medical School. He has taught at Harvard, MIT, and the University of Massachusetts and is the chairperson of the psychology faculty at the Fielding Institute, a pioneering midcareer graduate program in clinical psychology.
