Title: Dissociation : Vol. 1, No. 4, p. 011-016: Defining a sydrome of severe symtoms in survivors of severe incestuous abuse
Author: Goodwin, Jean, 1946-; Cheeves, Katherine; Connell, Virginia
Abstract: Severe symptoms are described in 10 women treated in a group for adult incest victims who had been psychiatrically hospitalized at least once. All these patients suffered at least 7 of the following 11 severe symptoms: dissociative symptoms, borderline personality disorder, legal involvements either with family court or other law enforcement systems, substance abuse, subsequent rapes, physical abuse by sexual partners, multiple suicide attempts, affective disorder, multiple psychiatric hospitalizations, somatization disorder, and eating disorder. All met criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder. Their child abuse histories were extreme.
