Workshop Series

Gerard led a three-part workshop series titled, "Who Is My Neighbour?" Responding to Sexual Abuse in the Catholic Church at Aquinas Academy, Sydney throughout November, 2015. These workshops drew from the See-Judge-Act model of social action, to consider the complex community of victims, perpetrators, carers (the families of victims and perpetrators), and bystanders that are deeply affected by sexual abuse within the Catholic Church context. The workshop drew a diverse group of lay and clerical participants who, together, were able consider new responses to institutional child abuse within a human rights, social justice framework.
