Il bambino abusato diventa adulto: riflessioni su alcune situazioni trattate - The author analyses some clinical cases in order to reflect upon the varying consequences of child sexual abuse on the development of abused males. Three distinct cases observed in clinical population are discussed. The typical victim’s transformation into offender, the persistent tendency in victims to perpetuate the role of victim and the persistent tendency in the brothers’ female victims to perpetuate the role of the spectator. The attachment system (provided both by the protective parent and by the abusing parent) plays a key role in the abused child’s development related to the dimension of fear produced by the traumatic event.
Keywords: sexual abuse, consequences of abuse, male victims, repetition of violence, inhibition of aggressiveness, consequences of victims’ brothers.
