Focus is on “Healing” in Policy that Joins Archdiocese, Victims
Catholic San Francisco
September 19, 2012
Survivors of sexual abuse by clergy and the Archdiocese of San Francisco have created the “first-of-its-kind” policy on how to engage and empower in the healing process. The policy titled “Healing the Wounds of Clergy Sexual Abuse” was created by design in collaboration and not negotiation. The new program offers a wellness program with counseling and mediation and offers mediation in lieu of a litigated lawsuit to help address claims.
