The History of Trauma in Psychiatry
Bessel A. van der Kolk
Traumatic stress since the 1970s
page 29

In "Rape Trauma Syndrome" (1974), Ann Burgess and Linda Holstrom at Boston City Hospital described the syndrome, noting that the terrifying flashbacks and nightmares seen in these women resembled the traumatic neuroses of war. Around the same time, the Kempes (1978) started their work on battered children, and Leonore Walker (1979), Elaine Carmen [Hilberman] (1978), Murray Strauss (1977), and Richard Gelles (gelles & Strauss, 1979) published the first systematic research on trauma and family violence. Although in 1980 the leading American textbook of psychiatry still claimed that incest occured in less than I in 1 milion women, and that its impact was not particularly damaging (Kaplan, Freedman, & Saddock, 1980), people like Judith Herman (1981) began to document the widespread sexual abuse of children and the devastation that it caused.

Sarah Haley, one of the people most directly involved in the acceptance of PTSD as a diagnostic category in DSM-III, was both the daughter of a WW II veteran with severe "combat neurosis" and an incest victim herself. Haley (1974) wrote the first comprehensive paper on the problems in tolerating reports of atrocities in the therapeutic setting.
