Helping the supporters

I had the opportunity to work with a very strong and brave group of clergy sex abuseĀ survivorsĀ over the weekend.

Two things struck me:

  • Their total bravery and willingness to grow beyond trauma, and
  • Their compassion for friends and family members who want to be loving and helpful, but don’t know what to say or do.

I brought copies of The Compassionate Response with me. The response? Pretty awesome. I had no idea how much of a need there is for this kind of book.


If you know someone who loves a survivor and wants to help, pick him or her up a copy. It’s a short read and worth the time.
