Abstract:

There is no denying that a woman's relationship with her father is one of the most important in her life. And there is also no getting around how the quality of that relationship, good, bad, or otherwise, profoundly affects daughters in a multitude of ways. In this work, the author, a research psychologist, examines the ways in which the father-daughter bond impacts women and offers helpful advice for creating a better, stronger, more rewarding relationship. Through her extensive research and interviews with women, she paints an intimate, timely portrait of the modern father-daughter relationship. Women today are increasingly looking to their dads for a less than traditional bond, but one that still stands the test of time and provides support, respect, and guidance for the lives they lead today. This book provides an understanding for any woman who has ever wondered how she could forge a closer connection with and gain a deeper understanding of her father.
