Bradford Fahlman, Archbishop Donald BolenOver the last five years the Archdiocese of Regina has embarked on a progressive dialogue with victims of clergy sexual abuse in an on-going effort to change the way those who were abused were treated. In this workshop the Archdiocesan Core Working Group members will share and discuss the best practices that have led to practical and tangible ways to provide a victim-centred approach that helps people impacted by the legacy of clergy sexual abuse and works to educate non-victims. Topics addressed include a victim sharing how abuse impacted her life, transparency, and accountability from a victim's perspective, accompanying and reaching out to victims, and educational and parish resources, all aimed at reducing re-victimization and initiating a change of culture around the exercise of authority.*Please note that the sessions will be recorded and shared with registered participantsThe registration fee for the general public is $50.00Register HERE
