A Qualitative Analysis of Adult Incest Survivors' Responses to Sexual Involvement with Therapists.
Armsworth, Mary W.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v14 n4 p541-54 1990
Analysis of interviews with six women with histories of incest and sexual involvement with therapists found three themes: (1) early environment that prohibited the development of a sense of "personhood"; (2) repeated experiences of depersonalization inside and outside of therapy; and (3) adoption of a "surrender pattern" to cope with violations.
