Why Dads Leave with Dr. Jack Travis
December 6, 2012
Hosted by Dr. Susan Allison
Did you know that 30% of fathers leave physically, and 90% leave emotionally? Have you experienced your own dad’s absence? My father was physically present, but he was preoccupied, distant and closed emotionally. Today’s guest, Dr. Jack Travis, contributor to the breakthrough book, Why Dads Leave, will address this challenging issue. Dr. Travis has begun a grassroots project called “DadLib” to end the epidemic of disappearing dads. Project “DadLib” raises consciousness and creates a rite-of-passage for fathers, liberating them from old, automatic patterns of relating. Jack will share his personal story as a first-time father, and how his own unresolved issues kept him from being present. Since then, he has personally transformed and is helping men embrace fatherhood as healed and whole individuals. Dr. Travis will also share the history and research related to “absent fathers,” engage in a dialogue about the healing process, and offer wisdom to anyone who emails or calls in.
