Forbidden Grief: The Unspoken Pain of Abortion

Forbidden Grief: The Unspoken Pain of Abortion - Theresa Burke

Forbidden Grief: The Unspoken Pain of Abortion


For more than thirty years, our nation has argued about abortion. In that time, over twenty-five million women have had one or more abortions.These conflicts reflect the ambivalence and psychological discord which also occur within individuals. Even women who chose abortion for the most compelling reasons often face a daily internal battle between defending and condemning themselves.While the political battle rages, little has been done to address the emotional needs of those who struggle with feelings of grief, shame, guilt, feeling judged by others--and more. Instead, social taboos have been erected that stifle discussion of abortion-related feelings. Women are left feeling isolated and their recovery is inhibited.Psychotherapist Theresa Burke, Ph.D., has treated more than 2,000 women struggling with post-abortion pain. Many had been rebuffed by other therapists who would not believe their abortions had caused such trauma. Others came to her because their family and friends refused to acknowledge the reality of their grief.In Forbidden Grief, Dr. Burke explores the cultural and psychological obstacles to post-abortion healing. She examines why friends and families erect walls of silence around a loved one's grief and reveals how we can and should listen to those who are struggling with past abortions.Drawing on the experience and insights of hundreds of her clients, Dr. Burke also shows how repressed feelings may be acted out through self-destructive behavior, broken relationships, obsessions, eating disorders, parenting difficulties, and other emotional or behavioral problems. Learn the secrets that women who have had abortions tell only to their therapists, but want everyone to understand.
Understand how traumatic abortion experiences can be reenacted through repeat pregnancies, abortions, substance abuse, eating disorders, and broken relationships.
Discover how to help loved ones--or yourself--take the steps needed to find healing and joy. Forbidden Grief also explains how to help loved ones, or yourself, simply by better understanding the nature and origin of unresolved abortion issues--and what steps will help you find healing. You'll also learn about the most up-to-date research on abortion problems, and the fight within the psychiatric community over recognizing post-abortion trauma. What readers are saying: "I had an abortion when I was 16 and struggled with the aftermath for 19 years. This eye-opening book offers the general pu
