I was surprised to see what was, perhaps, a technically accurate article, I felt it lacked compassion. One of the common symptoms of those of us who were abused (whether physically or emotionally) is an overdeveloped sense of guilt and shame. Someone searching for redemption in an article like this is likely to only end up feeling more of the same… “I have hurt my child (guilt) and this proves that I am defective (shame). My client who sent me this article is coming in soon and I feel certain she will be upset by what she read here. If I am wrong, I will write a retraction later today.
