This workshop is intended to spring forth the hope in those burdened by their past due to traumatic experiences. Participants will recognize that they are their children's "reality show" and that their children will most likely follow their example rather than their advice. Participants will know the importance of moving past guilt, not being controlled by self-condemnation and positioning themselves to be active fathers for their children and community. The presenter will facilitate a unique and innovative workshop that focuses on universal characteristics that every father needs so that men of all cultures, race, religions, and backgrounds can benefit. Fathers learn how to strengthen their relationship with their children, wife, or the mother of their children in addition to learning how to better care for themselves.
