The Victim Assistance Coordinator is the height of clergy abuse. Too many are malevolent and simply work to further abuse survivors.

I would like to see Awake stress the importance of securing legal counsel and therapy independent of the Catholic Church and not promote the Church as a source for healing.

Domestic abuse organizations would never recommend a battered woman (or man) return to the perpetrator for help and consolation.

Nor should survivor groups.
