The 1980s heralded the beginning of an awareness of sexual exploitation of clients by health care professionals and clergy. The focus then was on raising consciousness about the problem. This volume reflects the concerns of the 1990s: it explores the subject in greater depth, develops theoretical ties to other areas and proposes sophisticated solutions.

Following an introductory overview, Breach of Trust focuses on victims. Contributions include victims' first-hand accounts and discussions of support and recovery groups and individual therapy for both male and female victims and their families. The contributors then examine perpetrators: they describe innovative work being undertaken to understand the characteristics

Clergy sexual abuse & male survivors/boundary challenges when both therapist & client are gay males/etc.

Editorial Reviews

Resulting from the Second International Conference on Sexual Misconduct by Clergy, Psychotherapists, and Health Care Professionals, held in Minneapolis, October 1992, this volume contains some of the individual presentations, much information to assist victims in becoming survivors, and reviews of the present legal and ethical state of affairs. It begins with background chapters giving an overview and highlighting the basic nature of the problem. The balance of the book is divided into sections on victims, perpetrators, and responses.
