Overview

Betrayal of Trust: Confronting and Preventing Clergy Sexual Misconduct / Edition 2

Sexual misconduct by clergy is a devastating issue that reaches across all denominations, damaging the credibility of the church in its wake. The media regularly reports on the moral failure of leaders and abuse at the hands of those who are supposed to be trustworthy.

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.
