Child Abuse, Self-Development, and Affect Regulation

Anne E. Reckling, PsyD and Peter Buirski, Ph.D.

This article addresses the long-term disturbances in the psychological functioning of abused children from the perspective of self psychology and intersubjectivity theory.

Implications for treatment are discussed, and a case is provided to illustrate the points made.
