Collusion by the Mother The other person who has taken an historic beating in theories of child sexual abuse is the victim’s mother. Several authors writing in the 1980s suggested that role reversal between the mother and daughter occurs in families of incest (Alexander, 1985; Cohen, 1983), and some empirical support for this dynamic exists (Herman, 198 1 ; Salt, Myer, Coleman, & Sauzier, 1990).
