Rejected  Shamed  and Blamed

Rejected Shamed and Blamed

Were you bullied, shamed, blamed, or rejected by a parent, sibling, or other relative growing up or as an adult? Have you been the target of a 'smear' campaign by immediate or extended family and been left feeling frustrated and confused? Have you tried to reach out for help and support and been told, "Just get over it, it's your family, it can't be that bad"? Rebecca C. Mandeville is an internationally recognized Family Systems expert, Psychotherapist and Educator who coined the term 'Family Scapegoating Abuse' (FSA) as part of her pioneering research on family scapegoating dynamics and dysfunctional family systems. In 'Rejected, Shamed, and Blamed', she explores the roots of family scapegoating and how the scapegoated adult survivor can free themselves from 'false family narratives' and become the author of their own lives. In this informative 150-page introductory guide, the author clearly identifies scapegoating as psycho-emotional abuse while providing a means of understanding why dysfunctional families 'reject, shame, and blame' one of their own. Via psycho-education, self-assessment tools, and practical steps and strategies, the author describes the abusive aspects of family scapegoating and it's relationship with complex trauma (C-PTSD), as well as ways to dis-identify and recover from the 'family scapegoat' narrative.
