Listening to Male Survivors of Church Sexual Abuse
This project by Dr Rocio Figueroa and Prof David Tombs involves interviews with eight male survivors of sexual abuse linked to the Sodalitium Christianae Vitae (Sodalicio) religious movement in Lima, Peru. It investigates the immediate and longer-term impact of the abuse, and examines how it affected their sense of self and their religious identity. The interviews were conducted in Spanish by Rocio, and we are grateful to the interviewees for their participation. A Spanish version of the report is to follow.
