Clergy Sexual Abuse Bibliography
James Evinger's Annotated Bibliography of Clergy Sexual Abuse
by James S. Evinger, Rochester, New York
James S. Evinger has been involved with the prevention and intervention of sexual boundary violation cases in religious communities since 1995.
This extensive annotated bibliography on clergy sexual abuse provides resources on sexual boundary violations within the religious community. While the bibliography focuses on the position and role of clergy, the concept of sexual boundary violation by someone in a religious role is applied here to include other positions that also involve fiduciary trust and power (for example, a missionary or youth worker).
The bibliography is divided into four parts: Introduction, Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. Materials are arranged primarily by type and then alphabetically by author. The annotated entries are descriptive and intended to summarize the contents of the work in relation to the focus of this bibliography.
