Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
Donuel, I encountered both psychopathic & sociopathic presentations. The lone operator & those for whom 'sharing' was integral to their pathology. One of my colleagues found it impossible to work with patients who had sexually abused children; a not uncommon reaction. Pædophilia, a psychiatric disorder, is no more 'curable' than homosexuality, despite the actions & beliefs of sections of society. I cling to the hope that there will always be an individual who forms a new understanding of their behaviour; resets the boundaries & establishes the necessary controls to resist the monstrous drive to sexually abuse a child.
