Summary
Clinical psychologist Frawley-O'Dea addressed the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Conference of Major Superiors of Men on the abuse crisis, and has written about predatory priests and adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Here she discusses teaching and traditions implicated in the scandal; the Catholic hierarchy; and priests, laypeople, and culture. She grew up Catholic, but converted to Episcopalian in response to the scandal. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
