Response to the "Abuse of the Child Sexual Abuse Accommodation Syndrome"
Comments on R. C. Summit's (see record 1994-02082-001) article on the Child Sexual Abuse Accommodation Syndrome (CSAAS). The original lesson to be learned from the CSAAS is that society, and many professionals who come into contact with sexually abused children, frequently have preconceived ideas about how a traumatized person will react. Such misconceptions can cause people not to listen, not to understand, and not to learn. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA
