Yes, Hani Miletski's book (Mother-son Incest: The Unthinkable Broken Taboo) is strongly slanted towards research results. It was very helpful to my seeing that what happened to me was real and hurtful.

I've also used research results to prepare to present my case to local support agencies for the need for a local support group for male survivors.

I read "The Body Keeps the Score" and found from Bessel Van Der Kolk, M.D. that as of the printing of my edition Copyright 2014, printed 2015 That his assessment of the DSM and those leaving out complex ptsd have continued to leave it out? It's a purchased and profitable publication for that company. I don't understand the motivation to exclude C-ptsd? There is plenty of research to support its inclusion.

Can you confirm; will you confirm, and will you tell me either way--- Here on MS?

I have answered my own question and the DSM V and supplements still ignore the well established research results by the ACE team and many others who recognize DTD, Developmental Trauma Disorder. I think this is tragic and poor leadership by the APA DSM committee. The review of the process noted by Bessel Van Der Kolk notes outright dismissal without regard for submissions of research. Heady and aggravating information from the perspective of a survivor. Whether there's agreement from this Yale research group or not, the impact prevails. We are still neglected and mislabeled. Though advocates of the DTD have a strong base, the impact of leaving it out of the DSM creates exacerbating circumstances.

Need I explain to Yale researchers? I doubt it.

In comments Roland responds that as of June, 2017 the DSM still dismisses DTD

Yes in that I took Statistics I&II as part of my undergrad degree and it was something I actually understood and enjoyed. The study of demographic data on different populations is fascinating and most people don't want to know. Do you have any idea what they can figure out about you just by checking the data on your membership card at the supermarket? Populations or sample broken down by whatever you want. Generates the bell shaped curve. So for instance if you want to know who they think you are while you are watching your favorite TV show just look at the ads. They know who's watching.
