Rebecca C. Mandeville is a thought leader in understanding the consequences of child psycho-emotional abuse and family scapegoating. She is a licensed Psychotherapist; Certified Clinical Trauma Professional; and Family Systems expert. Rebecca’s book, Rejected, Shamed, and Blamed, is the first book ever written on “Family Scapegoating Abuse” or “FSA” (a term she coined during the course of her Family Systems research). She is also a YouTube Health Partner serving as a recognized Family Systems and Complex Trauma expert via her channel Beyond Family Scapegoating Abuse.
Rebecca served as Core Faculty at the world-renowned Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, where she first began identifying, defining, describing, and bringing attention to family scapegoating and its destructive impact on the targeted child / adult child. Rebecca doesn’t just research, write about, and treat FSA – she’s lived it, and therefore understands the unique challenges adult survivors of FSA face.
Rebecca has been serving clients in clinics and in her Psychotherapy and Adult Survivors of FSA Recovery Coaching practices for over 20 years. She writes regularly on her ‘Scapegoat Recovery’ blog and is a guest author for various online Mental Health organizations, including Psych Central, Paces Connection, and the C-PTSD Foundation.
Rebecca has been a featured speaker at conferences addressing a wide-range of topics, including Non-Dual Wisdom and Psychotherapy, Integral Psychology, and Systemic Dysfunction in the Workplace. She is also the creator of the Family Scapegoating Abuse (FSA) Recovery Coaching™ process, which was designed to help those seeking relief from the psycho-emotional distress caused by being in the ‘family scapegoat’ role. Rebecca also enjoys connecting with FSA adult survivors via her FSA Education blog and her YouTube channel, Beyond Family Scapegoating Abuse.
