Adult incest survivors
Adult incest survivorsRésumé :
Comments on an article by Carolyn H. Cole. The article is based on the common assumption that bringing repressed painful memories into consciousness is health promoting. Most research since World War II indicates that the repression of painful memories is the best defense and that breaking down this defense before the victim is ready produces long-term psychological problems. The abreacting of battle experiences in World War II produced long-term disability and was no longer used by the end of the war. Most people still seem to see this early World War II method as an ideal. Our military abandoned the method because of its disastrous consequences.
