    Excelente entrevista a una mujer que fue una heroína en el Peru tras denunciar abiertamente a los líderes del Sodalituim
    Aunque todavía hoy no se ha hecho justicia con las víctimas es un gran paso el
    poder hablar y denunciar este tema a nivel mundial

      Please remember in your upcoming laboratory discussions that clerical sexual abuse ‘creates a problem of faith and a spiritual crisis’ not only for child victims but equally so for adult victims. The Catholic Church needs to begin listening to, addressing and respecting the equal rights, pain and trauma of adult clerical sexual abuse victims, thus of all clerical sexual abuse victims, those it happened to as children and as adolescents and those it happened to as adults – all life is equally precious and equally worthy of rights, justice and protection; minors and adults equally, the Suffering Crucified Christ lives in all victims, no matter their ‘age’, equally.

        Dear Ornella.
        I have followed the question of child abuse and it is so sad but why do many commentators of the subject refer to clerical sexual abuse only? does it mean that it only the clergy who abuse children? but we have wide data of non clerics who abuse and have abused children extensively eg. parents, relatives infact I have data for this. could we try to be just while talking of this problem let us not hide in the sand the proplem if very wide not only to the clergy. this is painfully unjust to them, morever they are thousands who dont abuse children .let us face this problem realistically and justly otherwise we sound anti clericalists

    A fantastic interview. Dr Figueroa is greatly valued in the Catholic Theological College where she teaches.

    How were people invited to this conference? I’ve been writing about the sex abuse crisis and the Catholic Church since 1992. My new book addresses it in ways nobody else has hitherto done so: https://angelicopress.org/product/everything-hidden-shall-be-revealed/.

    My clinical background also informs current and ongoing work in trauma psychology, sex abuse, and the Catholic Church, as seen, e.g., here: https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2020/01/09/abuse-trauma-and-the-body-of-christ/

    or here: https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2019/06/21/the-paralyzed-church/

    Additional concrete proposals here: https://www.osvnews.com/2019/09/05/could-a-proper-implementation-of-synodality-help-save-the-church/

    and here: https://www.thecatholicthing.org/2019/08/18/recovering-and-recreating-the-institutions-we-need/

    I also have, by special invitation, an article written to the US Bishops being published in the academic journal Josephinum Journal of Theology on the abuse crisis and ecclesial structures.

      Dear Dr Adam DeVille, Thank you for reaching out to inform us of the work you are doing in this area, including links to your papers. The invites to the event have come through recommendations given by those in the CCP and CTEWC milieu. The invitation phase for “Doing Theology in the Face of Abuse” is now closed, but thanks for your initiative to create a relationship with us by which we are growing the network of those with a theological interest in this area.
