And a very good one. Lots of practical information bourne out of dealing with therapists who abuse and those that don't. Some very good personal graphics and images as well.

In 1993, Canada's National Panel on Violence Against Women published their final report, Changing the Landscape: Ending Violence ~ Achieving Equality, dedicating a section to ritual abuse. That same year a woman sought our help to exit from a present-day RAT co-culture into which she had been born. Working together we achieved success. As our understanding progressed we came to know how extensive pedophile acts are within all forms of adult-child relationships, adults who are commonly in positions of trust and on whom the infant, toddler, child, or youth ought to be able to safely depend. Pedophiles present as like-minded men and women, mothers and fathers. Other kin. Friends or neighbours. Persons from all walks of life. Persons who use positional power as a cover. The professional, the clergy, or lay person. A stranger. Adults who operate alone or in groups. WHERE ARE WE GOING? Our main goal is EDUCATION by: 1. SHARING INFORMATION about healing, prevention, and/or activism; 2. RESOURCE development for educational and healing purposes; 3. RESEARCH to add to the developing knowledge on the prevalence and understanding of RAT; 4. CONNECTING with others with mutual goals; and, 5. SOCIAL ACTIVISM making a safer world for infants, children, youth, and vulnerable adults.

The Canadian Survivors Network has been created as a meeting place for survivors of sexual and other abuse by clergy and their supporters. It is intended to provide a safe, neutral place to share information and resources across Canada.

Clergy abuse is a terrible thing, causing a great loss of faith in the church and the people who represent it.

Yet it shouldn't surprise anyone that the abuse in the church goes right to the top, this site is an effort a very

good effort to show that. Perhaps if those abused by the clergy and those in the church could get together and

come to an understanding - this area could lead the way in resolving the problems that occur in the therapy industry

which are so cruelly ignored.

Therapy Abuse

 

It's always great to come across a new site for survivors and this is another really good one please check it out.

Verbal and Emotional Abuse in
Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis    

http://www.therapy-abuse.net

The practice of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis encompasses many theoretical perspectives and draws practitioners from diverse professions in the field of mental health.  It provides a range of training courses and requirements and is confronted with continually evolving techniques. It is confounded by contradictory practice guidelines and uncertainty about ethical standards.  This inevitably provides a complex field for the discussion of issues that  transcend all theories and practice orientations.

Discussion about the abuse of patients/clients by psychotherapists and psychoanalysts is seldom found in the literature relating to psychotherapeutic or psychoanalytic practice and is rarely discussed by practitioners in the context of self-scrutiny.  This issue is not included in the curricula of professional training courses. 

Generally there is unanimity among training bodies and practitioners about what constitutes sexual abuse, and it is agreed that sexual misconduct in any form is unethical.  However, the issues relating to verbal and emotional abuse are ill-defined, and more often than not are outside of the consciousness of both practitioner and patient/client.

This web site provides a forum for discussion about verbal and emotional abuse in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.  It is created out of concern for patients who are inevitably vulnerable, and is intended to raise consciousness in the interests of better practice.
