Child abusers, especially pedophiles, and go to great lengths to hide the emotional, physical and sexual abuse they enact upon children, but the fact remains that child abuse is common, and is truly a hideous and hidden epidemic of the human culture. Individuals who are, or were abused, suffer from shame, and often blame themselves for the abuse"interactions in which one person behaves in a violent, demeaning or invasive manner towards another person (e.g. child or partner)" <ref name=VandenBos2007/> they suffered at the hands of a caregiver. The abusive parent or abusive caregiver which a child must depend on to live is essential to a child's survival, and cannot be easily discarded. [2]:7-19 The existence of amnesia due to child abuse is both highly desirable and strongly denied by child abusers, who hope their victims will lack the ability to recall their childhood suffering or will not speak about it. The inability to recall aspects of major traumatic events is a diagnostic symptom of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and traumatic amnesia, particularly for child abuse experiences. Having no memory"Memory is not a static thing, but an active set of processes." <ref name=Siegel/>{{Rp|51}} "Our earliest experiences shape not only what we remember, but also how we remember and how we shape the narrative of our lives.

Jennifer Freyd's "Betrayal Trauma Theory" suggests that dissociative amnesia is an adaptive response to childhood abuse.

Dissociative identity disorder is the ultimate example of how overwhelming life events that occur very early in childhood can affect"a person's present emotional responsiveness, which can be inferred from facial expressions" including both the degree and range of expressive behavior.
