A Warm Welcome to Our New Subscribers!
Last week I was in critical condition in the Emergency Room so today I’m feeling very grateful just to be here. I do, however, need to take a break for a few weeks to grapple with some unexpected health issues requiring the care and assessment of specific specialists.
As some of you participated in my first FSA Research Survey of 2023, I am sharing a short video that focuses on a few key findings resulting from this survey.
Like all of the research I have done on what I named family scapegoating abuse (FSA) and family scapegoat trauma (FST) to date, the latest survey I conducted explored the lived experiences of adult survivors scapegoated within their family-of-origin.
In addition to my articles, book, and videos on family scapegoating abuse and family scapegoat trauma, my research is designed to both bring attention to, and validate and legitimatize, the negative effects of being scapegoated by one’s family.
Comprehensive results from this 10-question survey will be released later this year.
To those who participated in this survey, I thank you. I’ll be releasing two more surveys over the next few months, and will notify you here when they are available on this website. As with all of my surveys, you may participate anonymously.
I hope you find this data helpful. Sometimes it helps to realize you are not alone.
