> Remember about Freud- he initially thought trauma played the major role in psychiatric illness,

yeah. i guess some people told him some fairly personal things...

... and then he generalised from *some people* to *all people* (as you do...)

and so then he starts up with:

'i know something has happened and if you don't tell me something pretty f*cking juicy you will never get better'...

... and then later on wonders why he is getting so many unsubstantiated accounts from *some* people. Generalising again from *some* to *all* (as you do) he concludes that:

>it was a FANTASY of sexual trauma that made people(mostly women) ill.

Does the sequence of that make sense?

And the moral of the story is...

> most therapists today think that real trauma-whether by emotional neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse- is a, or even the, major cause of emotional illness in adults.

Yes. Though to insist upon this in *all* cases is to encourage the development of false memories.

Thats why I don't think too much of considering history of trauma to carry a heavy explanatory load.

IMO diathesis can go a long way...

Make sense?
