Child Abuse Survivors' experiences of their Parent: trust, hurt and healing

Joanna Menger Leeman

Hurt and complex trauma resulting from childhood maltreatment has serious consequences for the lifespan development of the survivor (Kezelman, Hossack, Stavropoulos, & Burley, 2015; van der Kolk, 2014). Child abuse and neglect involves a betrayal of trust, care and protection within the very relationships that the child relies upon for care (Courtois & Ford, 2013). Despite this, complex trauma research has focussed on symptomology rather than on relational difficulties (Chu, 2011). This qualitative study explored the meaning that 19 adult survivors of childhood abuse and neglect made of their relationship with their parent and their experiences of trust, hurt and healing. Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) was used to examine participants’ responses to three open-answer questions.
