Presentation by Drs. Mangione and DiCello: “Daughters, Dads, and the Path Through Grief: Continuing Bonds of Attachment, Resilience, and Culture”

Dr. Lorraine Mangione, Antioch University New England (AUNE) core faculty in the Department of Clinical Psychology, and AUNE graduate Dr. Donna DiCello, will host a presentation entitled “Daughters, Dads, and the Path Through Grief: Continuing Bonds of Attachment, Resilience, and Culture” on November 2, 2015, from 11:45am-1pm in the AUNE Community Room. The scheduled talk is based on research they’d conducted for their recent book, Daughters, Dads, and the Path through Grief: Tales from Italian America. The presentation will include musings about how they did the study, some important findings, and the meaning of it all.

Daughters and Dads

Mangione and DiCello, who both lost their fathers, interviewed 50 Italian-American women of various ages and socio-economic backgrounds about their memories of their fathers, and the overwhelming pain they experienced at their passing. Although the book is focused on Mangione and DiCello’s own Italian-American culture, its insights and advice about the value of the father/daughter relationship through the lifespan, and grief recovery after the loss of a father, transcends to all women.

“The many stories of love and loss related in the book remind us that the path through grief is long,” said Dr. Mangione. “It is really the path of growing, being, relating, loving, losing, and finally finding our fathers in a whole different way.”
