CLERGY SEXUAL ABUSE RESEARCH STUDY

I was recently interviewed by Diana Garland, a researcher at Baylor University in Texas. She is conducting a research study, funded by the Ford Foundation, to gather information on clergy sexual abuse. The purpose of this study is to understand how this happens, find ways to prevent this, and to research what changes must be made in the law to effectively deal with offenders. I encourage any victim of clergy sexual abuse, especially those who have been abused within the last 2 years, to please send an email to Diana Garland. Your participation in this study is completely confidential - no one will know that you have discussed your case.

This is the contact email for the clergy sexual abuse research study:

Diana_Garland@baylor.edu

Please step forward and let your voice be heard! This is totally confidential and such an important study - the first of it's kind. Please help Baylor University get a large sampling of victim/survivor stories so their study is effective. Studies like this are necessary so this tragic problem is better understood and it is a way to bring about changes in the law. Clergy sexual abuse should be a felony, punished with prison sentences and registration as a sex offender upon parole. This is the one concrete way to deter would-be abusers. Ask yourself this question - would your abuser have done this if he knew it was a felony that carried prison time and regitration as a sex offender upon parole? My "rabbi" abuser is a profound coward. If he had been facing a felony charge he would never have abused me. Help change the law. The first step is this research study. Let your voice be heard!

    Victims/survivors must come forward to expose these perps to stop them and prevent them from amassing more victims. I did and continue to do so, even at great peril to myself. Tell the truth! Speak out. You will be glad you did. Dr. Charlotte Schwab, author of "Sex, Lies, and Rabbis: Breaking a Sacred Trust," survivor of a rabbi/abuser/husband. www.drcharlotteschwab.com

    Diana Garland interviewed me for her research project as well. I would encourage any victim of clergy sexual abuse, no matter how small or insignificant you think the abuse was, to contact Dr. Garland to be a part of this research project.

    The research is the largest yet in tackling clergy sexual abuse. One of the main components will focus on changes the community can make to prevent clergy sexual abuse. This is an important study.
