  1. And here’s the irony—one that I witnessed so often in my work with families: our understandable anger, our unremitting contempt for those who failed to protect the children who were abused, actually can make it more difficult for a survivor or a family or a community to heal from the injuries.

    Just thought that needed repeating! It could do with being heard over and over until it never needs to be said again.

    I’m still unsure why the word shame keeps being used. Is it Shame – Guilt – Embarrassment? Maybe it’s still shell shock and it’s time to dump the shame word, because telling people they are filled with shame, or aught to be filled with shame is actually negative and a Shaming Tactic.
