Priest Abuse comprises a range of immoral and unacceptable behaviors commonly commited against kids and teens by predatory clergy or other church employees involving sexual abuse of varying amounts. The abuse can be a one-off, non-consensual scroll barevent or it may involve many assaults inside an ongoing interaction. For example, a continuing “trusting” interaction with a child spawned by the predatory intent of a clergy associate, blanketed with the trust and respect imputed to a member of the clergy, leading to non-consensual sexual assault acts of molestation.

In all alleged Priest or Clergy Sexual Abuse situations, the short-coming by the Clergy member’s employer to entirely, adequately and promptly report the crime to police and other authorities, or the continuing failure to research, cope with and resolve fully with the occurrence amplifies the harm on the assault survivor, the community and potentially others. Current Clergy Sexual Abuse cases reported in the media highlight these failures, which includes “pass-the-trash” situations when the predator frequently a priest in the Catholic Church, is silently moved from one location to another only to continue his predatory, criminal action on an innocent parish community.

Priest and Clergy Sexual Abuse and Justice
Not a day passes without a news announcement reporting regarding sexual assault and molestation of children by predator priests, or the effects of the assault on the survivors and their families. If you are a victim of sexual abuse from a priest or other clergy member, these stories are likely to serve as an echo chamber, replaying the horror, embarrassment, guilt and other unwanted emotions staining your well-being. Encouraged by the societal movement and other pathways that encourage them to reveal the abuse they experienced, victims of assault are more frequently turning to the legal system to compensate them for the life-long harm and injury they have suffered.

If you are a victim of abuse commited by a member of the clergy, the result of the abuse on your life and core belief system can be incalculable. Nonetheless, holding the responsible person and institutions to blame for their crimes and indifference may offer a measure of justice and recompense to abuse survivors. Oftentimes, survivors can assert their legal rights in confidential mediation therein avoiding the need for litigation. But, if litigation is required, a case may be filed where the plaintiff can remain anonymous.

Predatory Behavior
All abusers, to varying degrees, employ predatory tricks that are commonly known as grooming, focusing on a possible abuse victim. Below is a list of grooming behaviors exhibited by predators who are in a job of authority in relation to the subordinate child.

Grooming
Grooming is a major part of a predator’s strategy. In a church environment, the clergy member is held as God’s representative. Within this environment, the predator frequently works closely with small amounts of children, understanding each child’s needs, vulnerabilities and situations. Once a target is identified, these vulnerabilities – like tumultuous family setting, loneliness, low self-esteem, emotional neediness, attention-seeking – may be systematically exploited in the following ways:

Trust
An assaulter will first try to get the child’s trust. This strategy is most difficult to notice as church communities are frequently tight-knit and personal interaction with clergy is commonplace. Here, the predator can pretend sincere interest in the child’s wellness and groeth – both emotional and religious.

Reliance
As a predator establishes a trusting relationship with the potential target and oftentimes their family members, the child will start to rely more and more on the predator for any need it is that the priest is exploiting and fulfilling. The victim will spend increased time with the priest, feeling more and more comfortable with the relationship and counting on its stability and security. In addition to attention and affection, the possible victim may receive gifts from the predator, including valuable, intangible presents like blessings and special recognition.
Isolation
As the grooming escalates, the predator may try to isolate the possible victim. This could result in single counseling meetings, meals or other methods of one-on-one isolated encounters.

This might begin with crossing the physical-touch barrier, or verbally, with inappropriate messages to determine the victim’s response to the progression. This will continue until the relationship gets to one of a physical, sexual nature.
Maintenance
As the sexual relationship is established, the predator will work to maintain control of the child and the continued interaction. The predator may likely want to manipulate the child by continuing to make the victim feel special and worthy. The predator will continue to exploit the target by whatever means necessary to maintain the inappropriate physical relationship.

Impact on Clergy Abuse Survivors

The impact of childhood abuse on the victim can be overwhelming and life-changing. Many priest abuse survivors suffer from long-term effects of the abuse including depression, disturbed sleeping, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, substance abuse and eating patterns, and difficulty creating and maintaining healthy relationships. Individualized therapy and support groups can help victims overcome these effects.

Legally, a victim of Priest Sexual Assault may gain financial compensation from the abuser and, more frequently, from the church for its failure to shield the child from the abuse, as well as failures or deficiencies in its process of reviewing and responding to reports of abuse. If you are a victim of Priest or Clergy Sexual Abuse and would like to confidentially discuss your situation and your legal options, we are prepared to talk with you.
