Editorial Reviews

Review

This much-needed work by Rebecca C. Mandeville provides a comprehensive introduction to the subject of family scapegoating and serves as a starting point for survivor awareness and further research for professionals if they want to begin filling in the gaps for this misunderstood and underserved community. It is dense and informative, but with a writing style that makes it easy to read.  I found myself re-reading paragraphs that had flowed by to capture Rebecca's insights and innovative nomenclature, which are too profound to breeze through. Because it lacks fluff and stories, it serves as both a reference and a guide, with links to outside sources for further reading.

The scapegoat role has always been with us, but the phenomenon has not been adequately or directly addressed within Mental Health literature.  For this reason, many adults in the family scapegoat role have great difficulty getting a proper diagnosis (which is often Complex PTSD, as addressed in this book), and difficulty finding adequate support and therapy.  Family systems information can help, but the additional layers of grief cannot be addressed or fully healed without greater understanding.  

This book also serves an important niche within Family Systems literature, as it was written for those who were assigned the role of 'family scapegoat' within their dysfunctional family system.  It adeptly addresses with specificity the abuses and emotional injuries scapegoated adults experience, which are distinct, and often more damaging than those associated with other dysfunctional family roles. The author also offers steps to healing with a great measure of compassion.

- Lisa Marie Campagnoli, Certified Trauma Recovery Coach, RYT-200


A much needed adjunct to the Family Systems model. Validating for those who have been impacted by family scapegoating dynamics. Mandeville provides a solid pathway for recovering from this kind of abuse. Recommended reading for those suffering in the family scapegoat role as well as Mental Health professionals.
