Molester Says Church Shifted Him to Other Parishes – The ex-priest, now in prison, makes the allegation about the San Diego diocese’s policy in the 1970s in a newly filed court document. By Jean Guccione 8/1/0/05 “A former Roman Catholic priest said San Diego church officials transferred him to other parishes after parishioners complained that he had molested altar boys and other youth in the 1970s, according to newly filed court documents. Edward Anthony Rodrigue was convicted in 1979 of sexually assaulting two boys in Ontario. Rodrigue made the statements in a court declaration at Corcoran state prison, where he is serving 10 years on a second molestation conviction. The declaration, which was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in San Diego, supports one of the main allegations in the clergy sexual abuse scandal: that bishops knew priests were molesting children, but covered up by shifting them elsewhere.”

More lawsuits claim abuse at Catholic-run orphanage Dawn Ostrom, ABC26News 8/15/05 Marrero, LA “Three more men are coming forward claiming they were victims of physical and sexual abuse at Madonna Manor Orphanage in the 1950s and 1960s. Stacey Brown and Ted Lauche filed suit against Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans back in March. The men said they lived at Madonna Manor because their parents could not care for them. But, they say the nuns at the home did not care for them, but beat them. And, they say they were sexually abused by priests and other men.”

Seeking justice, closure 8/16/05 By Joe Happ (The News Guard) “Carlich, 59, is one of 68 men currently making claims of sexual abuse by priests against the Archdiocese of Portland. He is seeking $10.2 million in damages and alleges he was molested as a sophomore at the now-defunct Tillamook Catholic High School by the late Rev. Gerald Dezurick, a local parish priest. The claims are now in crucial settlement talks that are expected to run through the middle of September. Carlich’s lawsuit was merged with the others after the archdiocese declared bankruptcy in July of 2004.”

Accused priest was frequently reassigned – Critics: Pattern of priest’s postings sadly not surprising by Marc Chase 219.662.5330 8/21/05 “Reviewing the work history of a region priest accused of sexual abuse, two former Catholic monks turned victims advocates and one priest turned whistle-blower said they picked up on a familiar set of patterns. A timeline compiled by The Times of the Official Catholic Directories during the Rev. Richard A. Emerson’s 26-year career in the priesthood shows nine different moves to various parishes or other diocesan assignments, an average of about one move every three years. Emerson’s timeline shows extensive contact with youth during his career, including four years as head administrator of Schererville’s Hoosier Boys’ Town — a home for troubled youth now called Campagna Academy — and six years as the Diocese of Gary liaison for the Boy Scouts.”

A Question of Trust | Colorado priest accused of abuse – Sex-abuse lawsuits multiply – Three more accuse White of molestation By Eric Gorski “Three more men filed lawsuits Tuesday alleging that the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Denver covered up for former priest Harold Robert White despite being warned that he had been accused of molesting boys. At a news conference across from archdiocesan headquarters, Brandon Trask’s hands shook as he recounted how difficult it was to break 30 years of silence and publicly accuse White. He and another man, identified only as John Doe, filed a complaint in Denver District Court against the archdiocese for unspecified damages. Earlier Tuesday, a Miami lawyer filed a $10 million lawsuit on behalf of 52-year-old Greg Roberts of Fort Collins. The former altar boy says he was 14 or 15 when White molested him at church and a social hall in the mid-1960s. So far, five men have filed lawsuits against the archdiocese for its handling of White, who in less than a month has become the archdiocese’s biggest challenge involving clergy sex abuse since the U.S. church was struck by scandal in 2002.”

Suit claims abuses at former school By Candice O’Grady “A member of Teslin Tlingit First Nation is bringing the Anglican Church and the federal government to court for sexual, mental and physical abuse he says he suffered at a former residential school in Carcross. The school was run by the Anglican Church, specifically the Diocese of the Yukon, under contract from the federal government. The student was emotionally, mentally, physically and sexually abused by staff and clergy who were there to “care for and educate” the native children placed at the Carcross school, he alleges. There is currently at least one other suit filed in the Yukon Supreme Court against the Anglican Church and the Government of Canada for alleged abuse at the residential school in Carcross. The other suit claims the plaintiff was forced to do unpaid work, which “amounts to slave labour.” This suit does not name labour without pay; however, the plaintiff in this case says he was sexually assaulted throughout his time at the school.”

The victim, Vicki Boer, said the sentencing of her father validates her allegations and should force the church to face up to its shortcomings in handling her abuse complaint….She claimed in an earlier civil suit that church elders told her not to report the abuse.

Vernon Uhran abused them and others through 1976 at rectories at St. Mary Magdalen Church in Altamonte Springs; the Church of the Resurrection in Lakeland; St. Theresa Church in Belleview; as well as on a cross-country trip in a recreational vehicle. The suits, each seeking $5 million in damages, also charge that leaders of the diocese, including Bishop William Borders, now retired archibishop of Baltimore, knew of the charges against Uhran, refused to do anything to stop it and even concealed the charges. The suits, filed in Orange County Circuit Court, allege that the diocese transferred Uhran from parish to parish, “where he continued to have unfettered access to minors and was permitted to have frequent sleepovers in the rectories.”

In a 418-page report issued Sept. 21, the grand jury said that the two archbishops — the retired Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua and the late Cardinal John Krol — “excused and enabled the abuse” by “burying the reports they did receive and covering up the conduct … to outlast any statutes of limitation.””

Dominion Post – 8/22/05 Here’s the real witch hunt by Linley Boniface “”When I first read Lynley Hood’s “A City Possessed,” which has somehow come to be accepted as the official New Zealand textbook on the case, it seemed clear there had been a gross miscarriage of justice. But on second reading, I began to wonder why there were such huge gaps in the story: why, in a book claiming to provide a balanced picture between many conflicting points of view, evidence from the children and their families had been treated with such scorn. I read everything I could find from the trial before reading it for a third time. This time, I realised the mistake had been my own: I had treated the book as investigative journalism, but I should have seen it as a polemic. Hood’s agenda is clear from the contents page: she devotes twice as much space to her theories about witch hunts and gender politics as she does to the actual trial. Evidence that does not support Ellis is quickly dismissed, while the character, background and professional credentials of those who believed the children are repeatedly attacked. The children’s parents are – there is no other word for it – demonised. Hood’s big idea is that Christchurch was seized by an outbreak of mass hysteria that extended not only to an entire community but to all rungs of the criminal justice system. You’d think this was a fairly controversial theory, yet it is now routinely reported not as opinion, but as fact. Ellis is often referred to in the media as an “alleged” child abuser, as if his conviction counts for nothing compared with the kangaroo court of public opinion.”

The murder of the boy, Orlandito Rosario-Maldonado, which shocked Westchester, went unsolved for years before investigators compiled enough evidence to arrest Robert D. DeRosario, a suspect from the beginning…..The boy was last seen on Nov. 2, 1998, in Mr. DeRosario’s apartment building after getting a haircut. The investigation into his death led authorities to a world of child sexual exploitation, and nine men, including Mr. DeRosario, were ultimately arrested on charges that they sexually abused boys in Westchester County. Among them were public officials and corporate executives. Mr. DeRosario admitted to sexually attacking 12 boys, ranging in age from 13 to 19, and pleaded guilty to 12 counts of sodomy, sex abuse and endangering a child. In July 2000 he was sentenced to 10 years in prison. “This case opened up a world of pedophiles we were able to identify,” Ms. Pirro said. “But for the longest time we didn’t have sufficient evidence to bring murder charges against the individual who killed Orlandito.”he boy’s body was badly decomposed and, aside from the fact that he was strangled by a piece of rope similar to some found in Mr. DeRosario’s apartment, there was little physical evidence.

Meet a daughter who says she can’t forgive her father for the years of painful abuse she suffered at the hands of this cult. How can she reconnect with her dad and start trusting again? Plus, China and her husband, John, are building a new life after leaving the group, where they were forced to have sex with strangers when they were both underage. They’ve had a difficult time adjusting to the outside world, and China wonders if she should prosecute her parents for abuse.”

Kim Kubal, a ritual abuse and torture survivor, is writing a book entitled “Power to Heal”. She would love to receive submissions from survivors on their healing journey from ritual abuse/torture to recovery. At the end of each story, please elaborate on one or two healing tools, which have been most helpful to their recovery. She is also looking for practitioners to contribute healing tools which they have used in working with survivors. Kim would like to have each story in approximately 1 – 1½ pages or less. It can be written with a pseudonym or with their real name. The deadline for these stories is December 2005. This book is to help survivors, loved ones of survivors and therapists, and to educate the general public on ritual abuse/torture, and recovery from this abuse. As always, please use caution contacting any resource mentioned in this newsletter.

Memory Fragmentation in Dissociative Identity Disorder – Onno van der Hart, PhD, Hilde Bolt, MA, Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD “All participants reported a history of severe childhood abuse;93.3%reported some period of amnesia for the index traumatic event, and 33.3%reported periods of amnesia for significant non-traumatic childhood experiences. All participants who had been amnestic for their trauma reported that their memories were initially retrieved in the form of somatosensory flashbacks. This suggests that, like PTSD patients, DID patients at least initially recall their trauma not as a narrative ,but as somatosensory re-experiencing. Surprisingly, however, DID participants also recalled emotionally charged non-traumatic life events with significant somato-sensory components, a phenomenon that has not been previously reported. This finding raises important issues regarding basic memory processing abnormalities in DID patients.”

How Childhood Sexual Abuse Affects Interpersonal Relationships – a research paper

Hi, my name is Laura and I am a doctoral student conducting research on males who have DID. This is extremely important research, as there is little in the literature about dissociative males. I am hoping that my study will add to the literature and will assist therapists in the early identification and treatment of DID in the male population. In order to participate in my study you must be a male, at least 18 years-old, and had any type of unwanted sexual experience during childhood. If you are interested in participating in my study, please call (631) 698- 7151 or (619) 516-4697. Your participation will be kept confidential. There is also compensation for your time in the amount of 35$.

The Science of Child Sexual Abuse Jennifer J. Freyd , Frank W. Putnam, Thomas D. Lyon, Kathryn A. Becker-Blease, Ross E. Cheit, Nancy B. Siegel, Kathy Pezdek “Child sexual abuse (CSA) involving sexual contact between an (usually male) adult and a child has been reported by 20% of women and 5-10% of men worldwide. Surveys likely underestimate prevalence due to underreporting and memory failure. Although official reports have declined somewhat in the U.S. over the past decade, close to 90% of sexual abuse cases are never reported to the authorities.”

Hypnos Vol. XXII No. 2- 73-85, 1995 Amnesia for Traumatic Experiences Onno Van Der Hart, Ph.D, Ellert Nijenhuis “There is a heated clinical, legal and public discussion going on “recovered memories” of childhood sexual abuse: are these memories false or accurate ones? One of the arguments made by some false memory advocates is that total amnesia for traumatic events, often started in terms of repressed memories” does not exist. Based on a review of the research and clinical literature on the matter, the authors conclude that this argument is untenable. They criticize the use of terms such as repression and suppression in this regard, and propose the use of the concept of dissociation instead. They describe the reproductive qualities of traumatic memory, as opposed to narrative memory which is reconstructive in nature. Finally, they present some clinical guidelines for the prevention of inducing false beliefs in psychotherapy.”

From Hysterical Psychosis to Reactive Dissociative Psychosis – Onno van der Hart, Eliezer Witztum, Barbara Friedman “Abstract: In this paper Reactive Dissociative Psychosis (RDP) is seen as a post-traumatic stress response. and as a subcategory of Brief Reactive Psychosis (BRP). A review of the literature and the evolution of RDP from Hysteria and Hysterical Psychosis are given. Issue is taken with defining the duration of BRP as “Brief” The authors argue that long-standing psychotic symptoms may be traumatically-induced. The dissociative aspects of RDP as its key feature and the concomitant implications for accurate diagnosis are proposed. The usefulness of applying hypnosis in RDP treatment is summarized in a case study from Janet and detailed in a case from the authors’ practice.”

Childhood sexual abuse linked to pregnant eating disorder symptoms 9/5/05 “A history of unwanted sexual experiences in childhood appears to be associated with both a lifetime and maternal risk of eating disorder symptoms in women, as well as concerns about shape and weight during pregnancy, study findings show. “Maternal eating problems in the postnatal period have been shown to pose a particular risk to the developing child by interfering with parenting and child growth,” note R Senior, from the Leopold Muller Centre for Child and Family Mental Health in London, UK, and colleagues.” Source: Br J Psychiatry 2005; 187: 268-273

Self-mutilation in substance-dependent patients and relationship with childhood abuse and neglect, alexithymia and temperament and character dimensions of personality. Evren C, Evren B. Drug Alcohol Depend. 2005 Oct 1; 80(1):15-22. “RESULTS: Among substance-dependent patients 34.6% was considered as a group with SM. Rates of being single and unemployed, histories of physical and sexual abuse and suicide attempts were higher in the SM group. Current age, age at first substance use and age at regular substance use were lower in the group with SM. Mean of TAS-20 and difficulty in identifying feelings (DIF) and difficulty in describing feelings (DDF) subscales of TAS-20 were higher in SM group. There were no significant differences between groups in terms of TCI subscales. Age, childhood physical abuse and suicide attempt history predicted SM in logistic regression.” From: AMATEM, Bakirkoy State Hospital for Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders, 34747 Bakirkoy, Istanbul, Turkey.

What research paradigms have cognitive psychologists used to study ³False memory,² and what are the implications of these choices? Pezdek K, Lam S. Conscious Cogn 2005 Sep 10 “Although there is an apparent false memory research bandwagon in cognitive psychology, with increasing numbers of studies published on this topic over the past decade, few researchers (only 13.1% of the articles) have studied false memory as the term was originally intended‹to specifically refer to planting memory for an entirely new event that was never experienced in an individual¹s lifetime. Cognitive psychologists interested in conducting research relevant to assessing the authenticity of memories for child sexual abuse should consider the generalizability of their research to the planting of entirely new events in memory.” Claremont Graduate University, Claremont, CA 91711-3955, USA.

Drawing Conclusions: Confusion Between Data and Theory in the Traumatic Memory Debate by Joyanna Silberg

From BO Providing misleading and reinstatement information a year after it happened: Effects on long-term memory. Peterson, C, Parsons, T and Dean, M Memory 12(1): 1-13, 2004. “The question addressed here is whether misleading suggestions made to children a year after target events had occurred will alter long-term recall. One group (3-13 years old when injured and treated in a hospital Emergency Room) were given both misleading and accurate reinstating information a year later, and recall of target events assessed both 1 week and another year later (i.e., 2 years post-injury). A control group had recall assessed both 1 and 2 years post-injury. Misleading had little effect on children1s recall 1 week later, although a few misled details were reported. However, a year later virtually none of the misleading information was incorporated into long-term recall. Rather, children were more, not less, accurate when recalling details about which they had been misled. Results were attributed to target events having been highly memorable and well rehearsed via previous recalls, and detection of discrepancies between memory and misleading information focusing attention on targeted details.” Psychology Department, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John’s, Canada.

She is also involved with the National Center for Reason and Justice, an organization that advocates for people accused of molesting children.”

Rasim Somer Diler – Conversion and Dissociative Disorders in Children and Adolescents Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Cukurova University Faculty Medicine, Adana, Turkey “Dissociation is a complex psychopathological coping process that exists along a continuum ranging from minor normative dissociative experiences (e.g., daydreaming or lapses in attention) to severe psychiatric diagnoses (e.g., dissociative identity disorder, amnesia, and fug). The frequency of dissociative experiences is at its highest during childhood. The single best predictor of dissociative disorder is frequent “trance-like behavior”. Children with dissociative disorders exhibit a plethora of fluctuating abilities, shifting preferences, and inconsistent knowledge. The link between dissociative disorders and trauma is well accepted. Children and adolescents may present dissociative symptoms prior to meeting full criteria for PTSD, panic disorder, personality disorders, or dissociative disorders.” Bridging Eastern and Western Psychiatry vol. I num. 1, 2003
