Description - Betrayal Trauma by Jennifer J. Freyd
This work looks at the logic of forgotten abuse. The author's theory shows how psychogenic amnesia not only happens but, if the abuse occurred at the hands of a parent or caregiver, is often necessaary for survival. It should give embattled professionals, beleaguered abuse survivors, and the confused public an understanding of the lifelong effects and treatment of child abuse.
