Internalized Oppression

Our success in combatting oppression and its results was greatly increased when we began to recognize the operation of internalized oppression.

The oppression coming from outside leaves distress recordings which, when restimulated, push the individual to mistreat himself or herself in the same way that he or she was mistreated by the outside oppression originally (invalidating himself or herself, accepting powerlessness, and so on).
