Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

Thursday Thought — New Resource items on Sexual Abuse and Pornography

We have added four new items to our resources pages: Sexual Abuse and Training Materials.   These items are for women who discover their partner is using child exploitation material.  The new items are listed below with a brief explanation.

These three resources are from secular sources

Rosie Batty’s discovery of ex-partner’s child porn charges

Rosie Batty, former Australian of the Year and Domestic Violence campaigner, talks of the trauma she experienced when she discovered her ex-partner had been charged with accessing online child abuse material at a library.  His child pornography charges are a lesser-known part of Batty’s tragic and well-publicized story.

PartnerSPEAK.org.au

A peer support forum for ‘affected partners’ – people who are affected by and concerned about the child abuse material viewed by their partner, husband or family members.

PartnerSPEAK Research Report

In 2015 PartnerSPEAK partnered with Dr Marg Liddell and Professor S. Caroline Taylor, AM to do research exploring the experiences of and impact on the non-offending partners of people involved with child exploitation material.  This published research is the first of its kind worldwide.

 

This resource is a Christian site –  much like G.R.A.C.E (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment)

Church Protect, Inc.

Church Protect began as a result of Jimmy, one of the founders of the organization, finding out that his father, a former minister, is a pedophile.  Jimmy Hinton, along with Jon Uhler, started Church Protect to help churches combat child sex abuse.  Their mission is protecting, equipping, and supporting churches to prevent and report abuse while meaningfully helping those who have been impacted by the trauma of sexual abuse.

    Congratulations for the initiative! I have been so blessed to see that you are effectively seeking to cover all sorts of abuse which is eye opening to us. Through the exposure of your teachings about all different types of abuse, I have been able to identify that I have been abused in other spheres of relationships besides marriage. I am pretty sure that many victims will also be empowered by the resources you presented that other wise they most likely would not know where to go for help. It is also good to have the information to be able to help others. Thank you!
