Supporting Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse - A Mimetic Theory Approach for the Local Church

Author(s): Catherine Beaumont; Christopher C. H. Cook (Foreword by); Steve Beaumont (Illustrator)

Health

Offering a model of support to survivors of abuse that can be employed within the context of the local congregation, and drawing heavily on René Girard's Mimetic Theory, this book argues that the treatment survivors receive in our churches could be greatly improved if we were to adopt the view of God as benevolent Other. Rather than attempting to change the thoughts, feelings and behaviours of sexual abuse survivors, churches can instead move past this unintentional scapegoating and welcome survivors into a community where all are on the same journey towards healing and wholeness.
