External disrupters of the dimensions of the Multidimensional model during recovery

Link    I wrote a blog entry but it doesn't seem to copy and paste

basically my update is that  post trauma or during recovery or in the present

  there are disrupters which collide with the dimensions

      like a billard ball scattering a cluster of billard balls thus re arranging them


  • sexual abuse or exploitation exprienced by csa survivors during  ones adult years
  • not being believed
  • being discredited
  • abandonment
  • incorrect catorigatisation
  • lack of finance to fund ongoing therapy
  • not being understood by a therapist / inapropriate therapy
  • too much research information locked away in Academic Journals too expensive to access
  • too little written up in books
  • a tendendancy for Survivor Services websites to write summaries without citations for survivors to read
  • a lack of acknowledgement that many survivors have University Degrees or have undertaken Post Graduate Studies
  • therapists who do not disclose actual or potential conflicts of interest
  • some therapists are more focused on their business model than client recovery
  • the influence of Lawyers and insurers  restricting the response of institgutions.
  • non adaptive protocols which become limiting or counter productive
  • other factors
