A Search for the Self II
This is a life story that describes how the various influences of Catholic authoritarian dogma and mandatory instruction can negatively hinder the developmental tasks of childhood from the establishment of "basic trust" to "adolescent identity" and beyond. This is about avoiding the pitfalls of untoward spiritual and religious training and how a persistent, open and hopeful attitude can help in a recovery. This book is not meant to be a condemnation of those of us caught up in a web of unhealthy developmental or instructional experiences, whether in the Church or within the society at large. Most people act in good faith. This is, rather, a criticism of an institutional/authoritarian belief system that is harmful and destructive if not tempered by a healthy regard for the advancement of knowledge, enlightenment and true faith in God's universe.
