Therapy in the Trojan Horse: Therapy Led to Soaring Abuse Rates
There's a myth that modern is a prescriptive, and in many cases, priestly predators would often appeal to "advanced" techniques in psychology to obtain consent from their victims for their own personal gratification. Many Bishops, irresponsibly, failed to trust tried and true methods, spiritual methods, and began to appeal to modern, and therefore ineffective, solutions. It should surprise no one that Psychology might have a better reputation than Christian Ministry in certain circles, but what is most surprising of all is that this undue enthusiasm for a predominantly secular (and largely unsuccessful) approach and its practitioners isn't checked by the facts. On top of being largely ineffective, at least when it comes to child predators, psychologists are far more likely to abuse, sexually or otherwise, those entrusted to their care than are priests.
