Sarasota psychologist Dr. David E. Mullen's new book, "I Did Not Cry for My Father: The Impact of a Father's Death on a Son." has recently been published. The death of a father is one of the pivotal events in most son's experience. Sigmund Freud called it "the most poignant loss" of his life. Actor Sean Connery termed it "a shattering blow." Writer Norman Mailer likened it to "having a hole in your tooth. It's a pain that can never be filled."
The experience of losing a father--no matter when or how it occurs--tests the strength and resilience of a son. Written from his clinical experience dealing with adult men and father loss and his own grief, Mullen explores important topics such as the different ways men grieve, the importance of a male buddy for grief sharing, the place of story telling and rituals. Where there has been conflict and unfinished business between father and son. dealing with this loss has important emotional consequences not only for the son but other family members as well.
This book is a guide and resource for adult sons who want tools to deal with father loss and for the women who love them and want to be there for them.
"I Did Not Cry For My Father" is a welcome addition to the literature of bereavement and the lives of men. It is a helpful resource for anyone facing the death of a father, or still adjusting to such a loss that occurred years or even decades ago,.
The book may be purchased at Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble.
