I have seen a number of cases where adults who had no previous awareness of any history of sexual abuse began to recover such memories in conjunction with therapeutic work to reown their body experiences. In addition the child may also feel pleasure despite being coerced into the act. " This puts the child in even more conflict since, having felt pleasure, he or she may actually feel responsible for what occurred, and have great difficulty recognizing that it was also hated and feared. The victim of sexual abuse disowns his or her body, not only because of the direct effects of sexual imposition, but also because of the conOicting and unreconcilable feelings that are brought about by the situation itself and the victim's own natural responses.
Freud has pointed out the important effect of parental emotional seduction on sexuality in his descriptions of the Oedipus and Electra conflicts. Reich later elaborated on this in his comments on the effect of societal moral strictures on psychosexual development and character. The implicitly sexual emotional seduction between the parent and child and the moral condemnation of natural sexual urges create fear, revulsion, and anxiety about one's bodily being. Under such conditions the selfthat is sexual is soon disowned as "the body" (no longer 'T' but rather "the," an object).
Yet a shift is taking place. It is increasingly common for mainstream. psychotherapists of varying professional and theoretical backgrounds to take into account body phenomena as part of the signiScant data of therapy, even if their methods present no cohesive way of undentanding such phenomena. I have noticed this shift over the course of a number of years of conducting training workshops for therapists in understanding and utilizing body process in therapy. Students now see as reasonable what years ago took much convincing on my put that the client's posture, movements, and bodily experience are relevant to therapy.
