A man suffers a minor car accident, and a week later constructs a new identity, claiming he can't "remember" being a father. Nearly twenty years later, his amnesia persists, yet no brain damage or physical cause are ever found. Enthralling and thought-provoking, "Forgetting Dad" offers an award-winning case study of dissociation, parental abandonment, and family enmenshment in mental illness.

"Forgetting Dad" is an essential teaching and research tool for:

  • Studies in Psychiatry, Psychology, and Behavioral Science
  • Social Work and Counseling
  • Mental Health Training, Licensing, & Continuing Education Programs

This award-winning documentary is also a fascinating addition to all public library collections.
