22 Jun RECAP: Daughters, Dads and the Path Through Grief: Tales from Italian America 6/20/2015
On Saturday, June 20, the Greater Washington, DC Region gathered at the Region President’s home in Wesley Heights for a conversation with Lorraine Mangione, Ph.D., and Donna DiCello, Psy.D., both NOIAW members. Drs. Mangione and DiCello spoke about and read from their book, which encompasses three major themes: the importance of the father/daughter relationship; the process of loss and mourning of a father; and the impact of Italian American culture on such relationships and loss. The book incorporates exercises and suggestions for women going through this type of loss.
Following the presentation, there was time for questions and answers and guests had the ability to purchase books. Throughout the presentation, guests enjoyed coffee, tea and desserts.
