BLIND TO BETRAYAL

From Close Relationships to Institutional Betrayal

"When a partner or parent or trusted institution betrays us -- whether by failure to help us or even to believe us -- does dependency make us blind to the betrayal or do we choose the truth and ourselves? Jennifer Freyd and Pamela Birrell use two decades of research and personal stories to show how denial of the truth keeps all parties trapped. Blind to Betrayal also includes a chapter on the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, a national group and fictional syndrome created by Freyd''s parents to deny allegations of abuse. This is a brave, helpful and landmark book." -- Gloria Steinem
