Teaser Tuesday: Understanding the Abuse of Adults

Quite often, by the time the relationship becomes sexualized, the victim is already deeply immersed; she has already heavily invested her heart in the relationship.  Many victims/survivors consider the religious leader to be a close friend; others have fallen in love with him/her, believing that s/he is "the one and only."
--  Understanding the Abuse of Adults by Catholic Clergy and Religious by Kathryn R, Byrne.

This book is a very well-written, accessible, and thoughtful discussion about a problem traditionally ignored.  It is a very good book.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
