“After years of secrecy and conflict between him and his father, Eric took another powerful step. Sitting across from each other at his parent’s kitchen table, Eric confronted his tormentor directly. His father apologized for the abuse. The apology prompted an emotionally ambivalent shift for Eric. But only after his father died in his prison cell–convicted for child pornography– did Eric gain closure when he realized “he can’t hurt me anymore.”
