MY BOOK BEGINNING
Awareness of the problem of the sexual abuse of minors by clergy within the Catholic Church moved to the forefront at the beginning of this century.-- Understanding the Abuse of Adults by Catholic Clergy and Religious by Kathryn R, Byrne.
In my law practice at O'Donnell Clark & Crew, I work with many people who were abused as children by clergy and other trusted adults. I do not usually work with people who were sexually abused as adults, which is what this book addresses. I am interested to learn more.
