Historical Abuse: When adults abuse the children in their care - 4 March, 2016 - Tavistock Centre, London

Historical Abuse: When adults abuse the children in their care - what one retrospective study has taught us

The 10th Annual Trauma Seminar



‘We will describe our experience of working psychotherapeutically with 40 adults who as children were abused by the same three men. These men all held significant positions of power in the orphanage where these vulnerable children were sent. As a result of the psychotherapy service that arose out of the police investigation and ensuing criminal proceedings, we gained some insight into the conditions that foster a culture that licences those in power to behave with sexual impunity. How do some in power come to be so corrupted in the face of vulnerable children and how do institutions become complicit in reinforcing abusive practices? Our research study and clinical experience goes some way to offering some understanding.’
