We Are Survivors 

This blog is dedicated to the tens of millions of adult survivors of child abuse and neglect who get up every day and try to work and function in a world that seems to not care about us.

Family Dynamics of Incest - Part 5

A young girl’s or boy’s need for nurturance and affection is natural. When their parents are incapable of being the loving and mature adults they deserve to help them grow up into a fully functioning adult, problems occur. When incest enters the equation, psychological devastation disrupts their development.[1]

Family Dynamics of Incest - Part 4

I am now going to talk about two types of mothers in incestuous households: the woman who is a nonparticipant and the other who engages in incest herself.[1] They both are guilty of profound neglect and abuse. To actually commit these acts of omission and commission involves a level of unbelievable denial and lack of any human regard for their children.

Family Dynamics of Incest - Part 3

Listed below is a description of four types of men who engage in incest. I have described how this may stimulate the son after witnessing his father’s incestuous behavior (read Sibling Incest) but the discussion below describes the father’s personality traits and behaviors.[1]

Family Dynamics of Incest- Part 2

This blog is a continuation of my discussion about the dynamics of family incest.[1] As we found out from what I wrote in Part 1, although the oldest daughter has borne the brunt of meeting her father’s cravings for intimacy, her younger brother and sister have also suffered. Even though the father has become skillful in practicing his molestation techniques out-of-sight, it is nearly impossible for accidental sightings of wrongdoing not to occur.

Family Dynamics of Incest- Part 1

I am going to begin a series of articles which will describe many of the dynamics of what happens in an incestuous home. Not all homes were incest occurs fit this description, but it is pretty accurate. I am summarizing information from an excellent overview written by Patricia Crigler, who at the time she wrote it was Commander, Medical Service Corps, U.S. Navy, and Director, Substance Abuse Department, Naval Hospital, San Diego, California. [1] Her characteristics of incest struck home with me because I was raised in a military family. This discussion does not go into military life per se, but is fairly accurate for a large percentage of incestuous families in America.
