The primary reason that child abuse is associated with Borderline Personality disorder, as are all the “affective and psychotic disorders,” is because our “mental health” workers cannot bill insurance companies for helping child abuse survivors, unless they misdiagnose them with one of the insurance billable DSM disorders. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/your-child-does-not-have-bipolar-disorder/201402/dsm-5-and-child-neglect-and-abuse-1 And the reality is that covering up child abuse has historically always been, and still is today, the primary actual societal function of our so called “mental health” workers. https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/01/23/18820633.php?fbclid=IwAR2-cgZPcEvbz7yFqMuUwneIuaqGleGiOzackY4N2sPeVXolwmEga5iKxdo https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/04/heal-for-life/ I have no doubt child abuse does occur within families, however it also occurs outside the home. And I have no doubt that, since our society has a group of multibillion dollar, primarily child abuse covering up, “mental health” industries. Whose child abuse covering up crimes have also functioned to aid, abet, and empower the pedophiles and child sex traffickers for over a century now. So our society now has serious pedophile and child sex trafficking problems, even according to world leaders, and the ethical within the “mental health” industry. https://globalfreedommovement.org/putin-blasts-euro-western-culture-of-pedophilia-and-satanism/ https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/11/us/backpage-sex-trafficking.html https://www.amazon.com/Pedophilia-Empire-Chapter-Introduction-Disorder-ebook/dp/B0773QHGPT Perhaps, the “mental health” workers should get out of the child abuse covering up business, since it’s illegal anyway. And rather than making assumptions that your made up, “invalid,” and “unreliable” DSM disorders cause child abuse. Perhaps our society should get rid of the child rape covering up “mental health” industries, and go back to arresting and convicting the child abusers, pedophiles, and child sex traffickers? Although since misdiagnosing child abuse survivors is approximately 80%, or so, of our “mental health” industry’s business, getting out of that illegal business, will likely be a hard thing for our child rape covering up “mental health” workers to do.
