Betrayal of Trust focuses on a common scenario of abuse--sexual involvement between a male pastor and a female congregant--and offers practical solutions on how to respond to and prevent this betrayal of trust.
This book presents methods that will help churches respond sensitively to victims and implement policies and procedures to prevent abuse from taking place. For clergy who may be at risk for this behavior, it offers help in establishing appropriate boundaries.
This second edition includes a new chapter that offers help for the wandering pastor and a risk-determination questionnaire for pastors who may become abusers.
The problem of professionals sexually abusing clients has reached epidemic proportions. This is the first comprehensive evangelical treatment of this crisis. It outlines how sexual misconduct by clergy is a breach of power and trust. It helps churches know how to aid those who have been abused and, importantly, gives guidance on the prevention of abuse by clergy.
