The inability of a child to thrive in a Constitutionally protected God based perpetual threat and rape culture is not a fault of the child; however it does become their odious responsibility upon reaching adulthood.

Always encouraging when research comes along and adds to this - Are sexual abuse victims being diagnosed with a mental disorder they don't have?
The lack of recognition for complex PTSD by the psychiatric establishment means it is difficult for sexual abuse victims who might suffer from it to receive the right diagnosis
There is little hope of re-diagnosis with complex PTSD because therapists are reluctant to diagnose patients with a condition that isn't recognized by the DSM
Concerns about the misdiagnosis of sexual abuse victims surfaced early on. BPD was added to the DSM in 1980, and to the UK's International Classification of Diseases (ICD) in 1996.
As these changes were happening, Bessel van der Kolk, a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, and Judith Herman, a Harvard professor of psychiatry, began to wonder if the developments were correct. What if these patients didn't have disordered personalities, but were suffering the psychological consequences of childhood abuse?
They began to interview male and female patients with a BPD diagnosis and published their findings in 1989 in the American Journal of Psychiatry. Their hunch proved right: 81% of patients diagnosed with BPD reported severe child abuse, including sexual, and/or neglect, usually before the age of seven. Van der Kolk and his team proposed that these people be re-diagnosed as having complex PTSD.
For this to happen, the American Psychiatric Association would have to add complex PTSD as a new diagnostic category to the DSM. Van der Kolk and his team travelled to New York in 1990 to present their case to Robert Spitzer, one of the founders of the DSM and professor of psychiatry at Columbia University. Victory seemed in sight: in 1993, the American Psychiatric Association's PTSD committee voted to accept Van der Kolk's changes and add complex PTSD to the next version of the DSM.
Twenty-six years later, nothing has happened.

Always encouraging when research comes along and adds to this - Study finds psychiatric diagnosis to be 'scientifically meaningless' Published on 08 July 2019
The main findings of the research were:
* Psychiatric diagnoses all use different decision-making rules
* There is a huge amount of overlap in symptoms between diagnoses
* Almost all diagnoses mask the role of trauma and adverse events
* Diagnoses tell us little about the individual patient and what treatment they need
The authors conclude that diagnostic labelling represents 'a disingenuous categorical system'.
Lead researcher Dr Kate Allsopp, University of Liverpool, said: "Although diagnostic labels create the illusion of an explanation they are scientifically meaningless and can create stigma and prejudice. I hope these findings will encourage mental health professionals to think beyond diagnoses and consider other explanations of mental distress, such as trauma and other adverse life experiences."
Professor Peter Kinderman, University of Liverpool, said: "This study provides yet more evidence that the biomedical diagnostic approach in psychiatry is not fit for purpose. Diagnoses frequently and uncritically reported as 'real illnesses' are in fact made on the basis of internally inconsistent, confused and contradictory patterns of largely arbitrary criteria. The diagnostic system wrongly assumes that all distress results from disorder, and relies heavily on subjective judgments about what is normal."
Professor John Read, University of East London, said: "Perhaps it is time we stopped pretending that medical-sounding labels contribute anything to our understanding of the complex causes of human distress or of what kind of help we need when distressed."
Update: Thursday, June 21, 2018 7:07:37 AM. My assertion is that support systems throughout Australia have been so thoroughly indoctrinated over our time that safe genuine untouched by religion psychological or psychiatric support is simply not available to those who need or seek it
"Is being repeatedly abused by your health professional just another page in the systemic abuse and cover up of child sexual abuse and childhood trauma that many of us have experienced? Claims of trauma informed and evidence based support or treatment do not guarantee or ensure that your diagnosis or treatment will be based on scientific evidence."
How does psychology differ from psychiatry or when the cure is more dangerous than the affliction
psychiatry and psychology both rely on a diagnostic and statistical manual either the DSM, a Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or the ICD-10 the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems. Both of these systems rely upon the unfounded notion of chemical imbalances in the brain for which there is no supporting scientific evidence therefore it is a fallacy far removed from reality when proponents make claims of being evidence based while the history of tens of thousands of recipients of these forms of faith healing, shamanism or a distorted subset of another belief based religious culture cause untold misery for the many millions that are affected.
Psychiatry differs from psychology (It must be said at this point that not all GPs, psychiatrists and psychologists adhere to this failed concept.) in that psychiatry does not take into account previous life events thus ignoring the evidence of the root causes of your current condition. This is a form of denial that psychiatry denies having any adverse affects and denies the importance of life events that scientific evidence has repeatedly and consistently shown to be the most important factors in understanding the psychology of every individual on the face of the planet. Psychology on the other hand does take into account life events such as trauma and sexual abuse and then relies on the implausible, unfounded devoid of evidence diagnostic processes of psychiatry to make a formal diagnosis. which is devoid of evidence. This recipe for failure has created one of the most bizarre forms of medicine our world has ever experienced through a combination of enforcement and recognition throughout legal and health systems across the world.
When your psychologist or psychiatrist is besotted by such a process you can be assured that your outcomes will be at a minimum as toxic as the process used to diagnose you but will most likely be far far worse as more and more layers of sophistry and unfounded pseudo medicine are added to an already traumatic existence that is followed by the application of drugs that affect the brain to the point of murder or suicide for many or a state of chemical castration of normal human brain functions. The staggering ignorance that makes this the predominant form of treatment for childhood trauma and sexual abuse quickly moves these practitioners into the realm of human rights abusers who have failed to keep their oath of first cause no harm.
Psychiatry, psychologists and many GPs have a vested interest in getting you onto brain altering chemicals for which the accompanying information clearly states that they do not know how these products work. There is no repeat custom if a client can self mediate with an active and effective product such as cannabis.
Organised insanity that conspires to protect and to shelter the abuser.

BULLYING WITH MURDEROUS INTENTION OR SUICIDAL HOPES
IS A POPULAR TACTIC IN SOME CULTURAL GROUPS
LEARN TO RECOGNISE WHEN YOU ARE BEING BULLIED
Verbal bullying is a means of using words in a negative way such as insults, teasing, put downs, etc., to gain power over someone else's life. Learn about the Effects of Verbal Bullying! Many people's lives have been destroyed by verbal abuse in business and professional settings.
Survivors of childhood abuse are particularly prone to bullying of this variety. One of the most tragic experiences is to encounter this in medical or mental health services. The most often complained of by survivors is when your 'professional' support group convenor uses the information that they have of your experience or condition to "sway" you into a particular course of action.
Those of you who like myself had a Catholic upbringing would realise that a Catholic environment operates on little other than this form of bullying be it from nuns, priests or other clergy then from "the religious" who are so accustomed that they appear blind to any complaint. In the majority of encounters it can be said that this is a result of culture or environment.
