Twisting of the Sacred - Clinical Guidelines for Addressing Clergy Sexual Misconduct
Facilitated By: Marnie C. Ferree, M.A., LMFT, CSAT
Date: Friday, October 4, 2019
Time: 8:00am- 12:00pm PST
Ethic Credits Available*

Most religious communities are not properly equipped to address clergy sexual misconduct. Some wrongdoing may be in the form of sexual acting out or addiction, and other misconduct may involve clergy sexual abuse. The later transgression is especially damaging when sexual victimization of parishioners occurs at the hands of church leadership (i.e., clergy, elders, deacons, or prominent teachers). In either case, the perpetrators are trusted spiritual leaders, which makes the betrayal even more deleterious, as those committing misconduct may be conflated with God. Clergy sexual misconduct, therefore, causes a spiritual crisis as well as a clinical and managerial one. This webinar presents background statistics, provides case examples of clergy sexual misconduct, and discusses ways in which CSATs can be involved in efforts of prevention, intervention, response, and ultimately healing.

Objectives:

Upon completion of this webinar, clinicians will:

  1. Describe two categories of clergy sexual misconduct and the associated risk factors and warning signs.
  2. Discuss the impact of clergy sexual misconduct on the victims and the church.
  3. Outline the protocols for the church’s response to clergy sexual misconduct, including disclosure to the church leadership and congregation.
  4. List the core components of an effective recovery plan for the clergy person, partner and family, other primary victims, and the church.
