Transcript

  • 1. MILEN SANTIAGO RAMOS MA MSc Phd clinical psychology . neuroscience. criminology
  • 2. This study came from my interest while working as a clinical psychologist in our state s hospital and until now that I am dealing with children placed in the orphanage for possible adoption and foster care. Sexual abuse exerts deep and long lasting effect on the victim. My discussion on sexual abuse will only center around the three interesting cases which I handled while doing clinical work. First, is the case of intergenerational rape wherein the grandmother was raped, the daughter of the grandmother was also sexually abused and the granddaughter who came to our hands was also raped. These women was raped in each of their lifetime. Second, is the disruption case wherein this adolescent was able to find an adoptive parent abroad but was send back home because of sexual acting out. Third, was the adolescent who was placed in a foster home but who eventually became a victim for the second time by the foster father.
  • 3. Research questions which I try to find answer are What is the commonality among the three cases? Will the psychodynamics of reported cases be the same as the Western counterpart. What makes them an Asian experience Did the sexual experience in the early years created psychopathology in the Subject for the experience to be reenacted Did the experience led to a controversial form of victimization wherein the victim became the perpetuator (i.e. she created the scenario for the event to be recreated)
  • 4. UN study finds ‘rape culture’ in Asia-Pac countries Sexual entitlement is the most common motivation across all of these countries. I think that very, very strongly points to the root of rape in gender relations, and the fact that rape is really legitimized in so many of these countries. –Rachel Jewkes
  • 5. Nearly quarter of men in Asia-Pacific admit to committing rape Survey shows extent of sexual violence in region where 70% of men report facing no legal consequencesNearly a quarter of men in the Asia- Pacific region have admitted to committing rape at least once in their life, according to a new survey with more than half of those respondents claiming they raped for the first time while in their teens. The study covering six countries – Bangladesh, China, Cambodia,Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Sri Lanka – found that 10% of men admitted to raping at least once a woman who was not their partner, a figure that rose to nearly 25% when rape of a partner was included. Nearly 75% of those who had committed rape said they did so because they felt sexually entitled; more than half said they did it for entertainment.
  • 6. COMMONALITIES ARE 1)THE INCIDENTS WERE REPEATED 2) FALSE MEMORY SYNDROME WAS OBSERVED
  • 7. THE INCIDENTS WERE REPEATED IN THE FIRST CASE THE INCIDENT WAS NOT REPEATED IN THE SAME PERSON BUT RAPED OCCURRED IN WOMEN OF EACH GENERATION WITHIN THE SAME FAMILY. THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT BIOLOGIC AS THERE IS NO SUCH THINGS AS BEING RAPED IN THE SECOND CASE IT WAS ABORTED AS SUBJECT WAS IMMEDIATELY SENT BACK HOME THE VERY REASON WAS THE SEXUAL ACTING OUT DIRECTED TO THE PARTNER OD THE ADOPTIVE MOTHER IN THE THIRD CASE, SUBJECT WAS RAPED BY THE FOSTER FATHER
  • 8. BUT WHY WAS THE INCIDENT REPEATED In the first case, when asked about her insight on what had happened to her, the Subject seemed to have lost for words .When asked if she knew what had happened to her mother and grandmother her body language suggest that it was a matter of fact that it happened to female members in the family In the second case, when as asked why she was sent back home she said that she did not know that will be the consequences after being sent for counselling by her adoptive mother. She constantly talked about the partner of her adoptive mother as similar to the person who initially abused her. And that her adoptive mother has more time to her work and her partner. In the third case when asked why she was so meek on what had happened to her she just shrug her shoulder. When reminded that she had a verbal contract with her social worker that she would be transparent on her day to day activities and social interactions she just admitted that she failed to right away tell it to her social worker
  • 9. Further proving on the psychodynamics of each case noted the following In the first case, when asked why she did not attempt to use all her resources to protect herself as she can use her voice to ask for help or her legs to kick the abuser or run as fast as she can she felt desensitized as what was happening to her at that time what really like what had happened to her grandmother. Her grandmother would retell the incident to her when she was growing up over and over again In the second case when asked if she was aware of what she was doing like gravitating to her adoptive mom s partner she said her goal was just to have her adoptive mother be more attentive to her In the third case, when asked why she kept quite all the time she answered she may lose the temporary home and family that was given to her. The foster family is her 6th family.
  • 10. In a conservative society like the Philippines where a woman’s chastity is upheld as a virtue, the shame of being raped cuts deep. The same attitude lays blame on the victim, labeling the woman as “a flirt” who caused the act, wittingly or unwittingly, through various signals of enticement or invitation
  • 11. Classic clinical explanation purports traumatic bonding, compulsion to repeat trauma as a result of rape,such becomes more magnified when one thinks of children now adolescents who were not taken cared of, was abandoned and had been under inadequate caregivers’
  • 12. EVIDENCE OF FALSE MEMORY SYNDROME In our cases this was accidentally discovered when the subject would report differently to me the clinician and the social worker handling d case and this is only in CIRCUMSCRIBED area
  • 13. As a clinician there are ways and means to check if it is a true memory loss. One is by using neuropsychological test.
  • 14. YES IF LEFT UNTREATED
  • 15. THANK YOU FOR LISTENING
