A Good Article On the Catholic Sexual Abuse Crisis

I really a good many people read this great great interview. See Maintaining a Safe Environment
Bishop Zurek Discusses the Vatican’s New Norms on Sexual Abuse

This part is interesting.
In an article published in Psychology Today, Dr. Tom Plante of the National Review Board (NRB), writes:“Although the stories are horrific to hear, they are almost never about incidents that occurred since the late 1980s. Incidents of abuse in the past 20-25 years are quite rare compared to incidents during the ’60s and ’70s. This is also true for other groups such as school teachers. Incidents since the 2002 crisis in the U.S.A. unfolded are especially rare.”

I did another post on this at Did World War II Play A Part In the Catholic Sex Abuse Crisis
