A Long Way Home A Search for the Self: An Autobiographical Sketch
This book deals with a life of struggle and triumph over the insidious effects of untoward religious and parental teaching in consonance with Catholicism. This is an autobiography that describes how the various influences of Catholic authoritarian doctrine can negatively influence the developmental tasks of childhood from the establishment of "basic trust" to "adolescent identity" and beyond. This is about avoiding the pitfalls of inadequate primary guidance and how a persistent, hopeful and open attitude can help recover from a crazy upbringing. This book is not meant to be a condemnation of the Church as a whole but as a criticism of misguided teachings and a dogged adherence to a belief system that is injurious and damaging if not tempered by a healthy regard for the advancement of knowledge, enlightenment and a true faith in God's universe.
