Rebecca C. Mandeville is a licensed psychotherapist, educator, blogger, and author. She coined the term Family Scapegoating Abuse (FSA) while researching family scapegoating's impact on the targeted child or adult child. Her pioneering research on FSA is recognized worldwide and she is currently coordinating her research on FSA and C-PTSD (complex trauma) with interested Universities for the purposes of future (peer-reviewed) studies. She is also author of the popular international blog, 'Scapegoat Recovery' (as featured on Psych Central - now accessible via her website). Rebecca also owns and operates her online private psychotherapy and FSA recovery coaching practices from her home on the Oregon coast, where she specializes in treating adult survivors of family scapegoating abuse as well as adults suffering from C-PTSD due to childhood trauma.
