Dr. Michael Dadson, one of the leading experts in male trauma, has published a new book, called “The Stories of our Fathers: Men’s Recovery from Intergenerational Wounds”. The academically acclaimed study details the raw personal accounts of trauma from six men.

“The Stories of our Fathers” is the latest scientific study of Dr. Michael Dadson from the University of British Columbia (UBC). The professor explains the effects of intergenerational childhood trauma in a man’s gender role strain (GRS).

The new book is a practical, step-by-step roadmap to narrative therapy. Readers are exposed to the lives of six men who have suffered trauma, grew up with unhealthy beliefs about gender roles, and have found peace in themselves within the frame of “masculinity”.

The book also contains several exercises so that readers are fully immersed in the stories. The goal, says Dr. Dadson, is to build an online collaborative narrative community where people can share their own stories of trauma and find healing.

This is particularly important for men. Studies show that males are less likely to seek emotional support from their partners and are more vulnerable to suicide. There are several reasons for this, but one reason may be a misunderstood perception of gender roles. For many men, anything that makes them appear “weak” should be avoided – including admitting to fear.

In “Stories of our Fathers”, Dr. Dadson explores the nature of father/son relationships and how this is crucial to a man’s self-image. Typically, a son learns how to act and treat others based on his father’s actions.

This becomes a challenge if a father displays unhealthy behaviors. Sons may learn to display their masculinity in an unhealthy way.

Dr. Dadson says that his book is not only for men, but for mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives who want to share a form of healing with the men in their lives. The expert explains the effects of GRS on mental health, causing confusion and stress for a number of people.

Dr. Michael Dadson specializes in male trauma and is a highly sought-after counsellor for men’s issues in Vancouver. He has helped thousands of men find peace and healing in themselves and is an advocate for male trauma therapy.
