Sexual Abuse and the Problem of Embodiment.
Young, Leslie
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v16 n1 p89-100 1992
Potential long-term effects of the trauma of severe sexual abuse on a child's sense of living in his/her body and in the world are explored. Trauma and dissociation are analyzed and linked to a posttraumatic sense of personal identity. Then dissociation, multiple personality disorder, eating disorders, somatization disorder, self-mutilation, and suicide are examined in relation to embodiment. (BRM)
