Broken Boundaries - stories of betrayal in relationships of care

BySarah Richardson,Melanie Cunningham et al

Broken Boundaries is a collection of seven real-life stories told by the women who have lived them. Each of these women placed their trust in a professional (mental health nurse, psychiatrist, psychotherapist, psychotherapist, mental health social worker, counsellor, GP) at a time of need and vulnerability and each of the professionals exploited that trust. Some of the exploitation was sexual and some was psychological or emotional. All of the exploitation had devastating effects on the women. As a part of their ongoing recovery from the abuse they suffered, each of the women has had the courage and resolve to share their stories. Each of the authors takes the reader through a telling journey of blurred boundaries, dependency, exploitation and the aftermath. These stories contain crucial insights for other people going through similar experiences, for those trying to help them and for those who hold positions of trust.
