June 2023 Newsletter – FSA Education

Welcome to all of our new subscribers!

Due to the death of a family member, I will not be able to get a new article out this month. However, our May 2023 guest author, Dr. Erin Watson, wrote an excellent article I’d like to pass along to you, with her permission. In this article, Dr. Watson addresses a question that both she and I are asked frequently by new FSA adult survivor clients: “How long before I am healed?” (You might want to also spend some time exploring her blog and checking out some of her other articles on family scapegoat trauma and healing as well).

I’m also including my latest video, which reviews 16 experiences that came up frequently while conducting my original research on what I eventually named family scapegoating abuse (FSA). By the way, these 16 experiences are included in my book Rejected, Shamed, and Blamed; I do expand upon what I wrote in this particular chapter during the course of the video.

Family Scapegoating Abuse Education on Instagram

In addition to being active on Facebook and Pinterest, I am pleased to share that I am now active on Instagram in response to subscriber requests. My intention is to raise awareness about family scapegoating’s impact on children and adult children, as well as to bring attention to this most insidious and devastating form of ‘invisible’ (psycho-emotional) abuse within the clinical community on social media. I hope you will join me in this effort by connecting with me there.

May you enjoy the beginning of summer and the abundance of light available to you during this season.
