The Sexual Abuse of Women by Members of the Clergy
McFarland, 2010. gada 27. jūl. - 308 lappuses
The sexual abuse and exploitation of women by members of the clergy is not a new issue. What is new is the public's growing understanding of what is involved when members of the clergy ignore or repeatedly fall short of legal and ethical requirements to adhere to the expected standards of conduct. This work is based on the author's study of 25 women from 11 states who were sexually abused by members of the clergy. A primary goal of the study was to help the violated women understand their experiences and make available to educators, practitioners and others concrete information about what it means to be sexually exploited by a trusted religious representative. The author also considers the viability of a trauma model to study the impact of such sexual abuse on women and on their relationships with others, and presents her findings that the participants did exhibit symptoms that strongly correspond with the classical and complex trauma criteria used.

273. lappuse - It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator. All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing. He appeals to the universal desire to see, hear, and speak no evil. The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of pain.

These names may be awkward and unwieldy, but practically any name that gives recognition to the syndrome is better than no name at all. Naming the syndrome of complex post-traumatic stress disorder represents an essential step toward granting those who have endured prolonged exploitation a measure of the recognition they deserve.
20. lappuse - It is a dramatic term for circumstances that eventuate in crime the deliberate attempt to eradicate or compromise the separate identity of another person. The victims of soul murder remain in large part possessed by another, their souls in bondage to someone else.

If history is to be understood as the history of a trauma, it is a history that is experienced as the endless attempt to assume one's survival as one's own.

28. lappuse - However, even though psychodynamic psychiatry is invaluable in helping us to understand the characterological adaptations to the memories of the trauma, the core issue in PTSD is that the primary symptoms are not symbolic, defensive, or driven by secondary gain. The core issue is the inability to integrate the reality of particular experiences, and the resulting repetitive replaying of the trauma in images, behaviors, feelings, physiological states, and interpersonal relationships.
