Trauma and Transformation. The Catholic Church and the Sexual Abuse Crisis
The Catholic Church and the Sexual Abuse Crisis
October 14-15, 2011
McGill’s Centre for Research on Religion (CREOR), in collaboration with a number of community partners including the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, hosted a conference on the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church. A blue-ribbon team of scholars and religious leaders from Canada and beyond brought their experience and expertise into dialogue. The focus of the conference was to capture for the Church, from a wide variety of perspectives, the lessons learned from the crisis and to identify some of the ways forward.
This set of three DVDs includes a 55 minute compilation of talks from the conference, as well as each of the presentations in their entirety.
