This book is an invaluable key to self-understanding. Using examples from her own life and the lives of her clients, as well as from dreams, fairy tales, myths, films, and literature, Linda Schierse Leonard, a Jungian analyst, exposes the wound of the spirit that both men and women of our culture bear—a wound that is grounded in a poor relationship between masculine and feminine principles. Leonard speculates that when a father is wounded in his own psychological development, he is not able to give his daughter the care and guidance she needs. Inheriting this wound, she may find that her ability to express herself professionally, intellectually, sexually, and socially is impaired. On a broader scale, Leonard discusses how women compensate for cultural devaluation, resorting to passive submission (“the Eternal Girl”), or a defensive imitation of the masculine (“the Armored Amazon”). The Wounded Woman shows that by understanding the father-daughter wound and working to transform it psychologically, it is possible to achieve a fruitful, caring relationship between men and women, between fathers and daughters, a relationship that honors both the mutuality and the uniqueness of the sexes.

The first research-based text that focuses on the impact of the father-daughter relationship, this provocative book examines the factors that can strengthen or weaken these relationships and the impact that these relationships have on society. The research is brought to life with compelling personal stories from fathers and daughters, including well-known celebrities and politicians. Controversial questions engage the reader and film lists and website resources demonstrate the relevance of the research. Boxed quizzes and questionnaires show students how the research can be applied to their own lives while others highlight the relationships between actual fathers and daughters. Bold faced terms, a conclusion, and review questions keep readers focused on the key concepts. How these relationships are often ignored or denigrated in the media and in some mental health and legal systems is examined. The hope is that readers will apply the research to their own families and/or work. The book addresses: What is "good" fathering? How do daughters influence their fathers' well-being? How do fathers affect their daughters' social, academic, athletic, and psychological development? How are problems such as depression, eating disorders, and teenage pregnancy related to the quality of these relationships? How are father-daughter relationships in ethnic and racial groups unique? How do incarceration, abuse, gay or lesbian relationships, military service, immigration, and poverty affect father-daughter relationships? The book opens with the importance of the father’s role on daughters and the changing patterns of these roles. Chapter 2 examines the myths and misconceptions of father-daughter relationships including how they are portrayed in the media and the differences between parenting styles. Chapter 3 explores the behaviors that constitute "good" fathering. Scales used to measure "good" fathering are included. How fathers affect their daughters’ social, academic, intellectual, athletic, and psychological development is then considered. Factors that can weaken father-daughter relationships, such as divorce, including various theoretical perspectives, are explored in chapters 5 and 6. Father-daughter relationships of racial or ethnic minorities and an array of potentially destructive situations that affect these relationships are the focus of chapters 7 and 8. The impact of fathers who are incarcerated, abusive, alcoholics, gay, or sperm donors are considered. The book concludes with suggestions on where we go from here. Intended as a supplemental text for upper-level undergraduate or graduate courses on father-daughter relationships and/or parenting taught in human development, family studies, psychology, sociology, counseling, social work, and women’s studies, this practical book also appeals to mental health practitioners, social workers, legal professionals, and school counselors interested in these relationships.

Do you feel that God has abandoned you? Do you struggle with fear and grief? Are you weighed down with doubt, anger, or depression? Do you wonder if you can really trust God? "You are not alone." For eight years, author Karen A. Mace and her husband, Ross, served as missionaries in South America. Blessed with the joy of doing God's work they brought their two daughters Miriam and Sarah with them and rejoiced in the birth of their third daughter Ileana soon after arriving in Ecuador. God tested Karen and Ross more than most of His soldiers. After the deaths of Ileana and Sarah in Ecuador, just three and twelve at the time, Karen was thrown into a crisis of faith that lasted for years. She "understands" how even the most faithful can stumble and question and reject the love of the Lord. "Healing Begins in the Heart," Karen shares how God found her in her doubt. God exposed the lies that Karen had once believed. He showed her how deception created the false lens through which she saw God. As she grew in knowledge of God's loving care, she came to see the life transforming truth of who God really is and the freedom that is hers through all that Jesus has done. An open and honest sharing of Karen's trials, tragedies, and ultimate victories, this is a story about God's grace, His perseverance with us, and His desire for an intimate relationship with us that leads us into the good plans and purposes He has for each one of us.

Spanning three generations of women in a family with distressful father-daughter relationships, this story reflects on how one's father affects later choices in life and on the struggle to resolve childhood issues. When Linda Richardson returns to her girlhood home in the Desert Southwest after her father's death, she begins to uncover the reasons for her nonchalance about his passing. As she struggles to make sense of what should be a sad time for her, she sorts out the many steps taken to eliminate the emotional damage of a painful father-daughter relationship in order to move on with her life. She also sees the shadows cast over the lives of her mother and daughter by difficulties with male parental figures. In this episodic tale of three generations of women, the reader will discover how each woman finds the seeds of feminine strength within herself to transform hurts into healing and wistfulness into wisdom. Underlying the narrative is a journey of spiritual awakening, dramatized in a final scene that will remain with readers long after the book ends. ------ "Desert Daughter is a unique and vividly descriptive novel about daughters who have been 'invisible' or neglected by their fathers and how that affects their ensuing relationships with men as well as their own creativity. Nancy Roeder's luminous descriptions of nature are contrasted with the subtlety of wounds that are often ignored as 'normal' occurrences, but which leave women passive and unable to own their worth. This book offers deep insight for anyone (men included) who has dealt with father-daughter issues, and it shows how women can transform, reclaim their strength and bloom." -- Linda Schierse Leonard, Ph.D., author of The Wounded Woman: Healing the Father-Daughter Relationship and On The Way to the Wedding

The Path to Your Inner Warrior Goddess It’s no secret that women today are juggling a lot. We now make up more than half the workforce in the United States and are busier than ever with partners, children, family and friends, often putting the needs of others ahead of our own. And if we feel overwhelmed by it all or fall short of perfection, many of us have learned to be our own worst critic rather than our own best friend. In Warrior Goddess Training, bestselling author HeatherAsh Amara provides the antidote to the flawed idea that you are not enough. Direct, honest, and unapologetic, Amara will show you how to release the layers of expectations to finally see yourself for the authentic, perceptive, perfect woman you really are. If you don’t love and honor yourself with every fiber of your being, if you struggle with owning your power and passion, if you could use more joyful play and simple presence in your life, then it is time for an inner revolution. It is time to claim your Warrior Goddess energy. Drawing on the wisdom from Buddhism, Toltec wisdom, and ancient Earth-based goddess spirituality, the Warrior Goddess path includes personal stories, rituals, and exercises that will encourage and inspire you to become the true warrior goddess you are meant to be.

The Inner World Of Trauma

Donald Kalsched explores the interior world of dream and fantasy images encountered in therapy with people who have suffered unbearable life experiences. He shows how, in an ironical twist of psychical life, the very images which are generated to defend the self can become malevolent and destructive, resulting in further trauma for the person. Why and how this happens are the questions the book sets out to answer. Drawing on detailed clinical material, the author gives special attention to the problems of addiction and psychosomatic disorder, as well as the broad topic of dissociation and its treatment. By focusing on the archaic and primitive defenses of the self he connects Jungian theory and practice with contemporary object relations theory and dissociation theory. At the same time, he shows how a Jungian understanding of the universal images of myth and folklore can illuminate treatment of the traumatised patient. Trauma is about the rupture of those developmental transitions that make life worth living. Donald Kalsched sees this as a spiritual problem as well as a psychological one and in The Inner World of Trauma he provides a compelling insight into how an inner self-care system tries to save the personal spirit.
