Breaking Down Wall of Silence
Miller incorporates psychohistorical analyses of Hitler, Stalin, and Ceausescu to reveal the links between the horrors of their childhoods and the horrors they inflicted on the world. She pleads for an awareness of society’s role in child abuse and for recognition of the victim.
Acclaimed psychotherapist Alice Milller continues her study of the roots and results of child abuse. Drawing on her own experience (and that of her patients), Dr. Miller describes the systematic way in which evidence of child abuse has been ignored, repressed, and ultimately dismissed as untrue by doctors, parents, and even the victims. She advocated getting access to and articulating loong-denied emotions so that healing may take place.
