As some of you know, I have been busy ‘crunching’ a tremendous amount of data related to qualitative research I have been conducting on what I named family scapegoating abuse (FSA) for over ten years now.
I plan to publish a book with my research results in 2022, but also thought this would be a good opportunity for me to answer some of your questions and offer suggestions regarding scapegoating dynamics, whether mild or severe.
I will answer those questions that come up most frequently and are of the greatest interest to FSA survivors. If you’d like to submit a question for me to consider for my book, you can ask me here in the comments or use this contact form.
As always, thank you for your continued support as I work to bring attention to what is an under-researched, poorly understood subject.
