Trauma and Transformation: The Catholic Church and the Sexual Abuse Crisis; 14-15 October 2011
For various reasons, the Catholic Church has emerged as the critical “case study” for the sexual abuse of minors and children within institutional settings. As this crisis unfolds, a wealth of data as well as psychological, ethical, legal, historical, and sociological analysis has been generated. This conference zeros in on these developments and attempts to glean the lessons learned from the trauma of, and evolving responses to, the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church.
Salt and Light Productions has produced a DVD documentary of the Trauma and Transformation conference
