My Father's Beast

My Father's Beast

Author(s) : Gail Haley

Paperback, 32 pages.

Item #251356

Master author, illustrator and storyteller, Gail E. Haley has created a book about substance abuse in contemporary family life. The book uses allegory in which the ‘beast’ takes over a parent during active abuse.

As a progressive disease the ‘beast’ becomes more and more powerful until it controls the abuser’s life. Children who observe this transformation often become confused, hurt, angry, distanced and alienated.

Many children growing up in such circumstances find it difficult or impossible to communicate their experiences, fears and pain. This process can cripple them emotionally, psychologically and impair their ability to concentrate at school, placing them at greater risk.
