Sunday, 21 July 2019 11:55:55 AM

A powerful, unique; first of its kind, current, data rich study that will set boundaries and benchmarks and will establish Guila Benchimol as a ground breaking researcher and leader in her chosen field.

Expect this work to establish new and historic reference points for many years to come for every victim and survivor of sexual violence from here on.

Abstract

Victims and survivors of sexual violence often lead the fight against sexual violence and may see themselves, or be perceived by others, as activists or advocates.

However, the experiences involved in the move from victim and survivor to advocate and activist have yet to be studied. Therefore, this study asks: How do victims of sexual violence become anti-sexual violence advocates?

Drawing upon labeling and feminist standpoint theories, this thesis examines the parallels between primary, secondary, and tertiary deviance (Lemert 1951; Kitsuse 1980) and primary, secondary, and tertiary victimization following sexual violence (Kenney 2002). Tertiary deviance, in which those who have been shamed, silenced, and marginalized demand recognition and rights, can explain victims' move to advocacy (Kitsuse 1980; Kenney 2002). Furthermore, feminist standpoint theory explains how victims of sexual violence have been silenced and stigmatized and how they use their agency to resist primary and secondary victimization and stigmatization (Harding 1987; Harding 1991; Riessman 2000a).

Narrative interviews captured participants' experiences of victimization, their disclosures and reactions to these disclosures, and their subsequent involvement in advocacy or activism. The study found that participants became advocates and activists through five main processes rather than a single event and that primary and secondary victimization are linked to their advocacy involvement in many important ways.

Many continue to work through their victimization experiences as they advocate. Future research should expand on the concept of tertiary victimization

John Brown is the author, developer and publisher of Trauma in Religion a theory that describes the origins of the human rights abuses the Catholic Church inflicts on Catholic children.

John blogs erratically here, most often without commas or other punctuation, linguistic, identity or grammatical rules in his own unique self acquired style about his personal experiences on a range of topics that interest or affect himself and other survivors where he writes of his successes and failures in his task of obtaining only trauma informed and evidence based secular professional care and services and in necessary engagements with the judiciary and government.

His interests include Human Rights for all Australians that should act as a clear boundary for all institutions regardless of an institutions or individuals thoughts on their favorite supreme being, gods, demons or spirits engaging in secular Australian communities; trauma and recovery from the crimes, criminal and psychological behaviours of the product of generations of the hijacking of a favored social position by a rape encultured clergy and the helpless aiding and abetting by fearful bonded Catholics in modern secular Australia.

John sees the need to promote equality and human rights through the need for safety and equality in community, care and education systems when it comes to religious beliefs as a result of directly experiencing and learning that millions of others experienced similar pathological use of religious beliefs including extortion, bribery, blackmail and doctrinal failures such as the forgiveness process as practised in the Catholic world. As one only example of this in the world of business and governance, the reality is that "Twenty-three of the 25 biggest private welfare agencies in Australia are faith-based". This does not reflect the needs or the sentiments of the Australian community and directly fails the 60,000 who came forward to the Royal Commission, their families and the millions who are waiting for real signs of safety so that they too can come forward and begin their recovery.

This experience has added to his interests that go on to include the many abuses of the continuing criminal cover up on his FAQyMe Gene blog and recently stepped outside of his comfort zone through joining Glen Fisher on a testing of the world of podcasting.

John likes to be able to inform people of things that bring benefit and can relieve the psychological suffering that knows so many Catholic children still suffer from daily. As well many now elderly are confused and suffer also as the truth and the reality of the global scale of the criminal activity of their clergy and accomplices is brought to the world.

John found it was good advice with regard to recovery from trauma to explore your attachments or other relationship and safety vulnerabilities with evidence based trauma informed specialists or you can privately Learn the Science of Healthy Attachment Relationships in a safe, low cost self timed manner.

He researched the nerve growth factor found in the Lion's Mane fungi and now take a daily capsule as a supplement to assist with recovery and management of childhood injuries.John gains health benefits and pain reduction with that .

He finds the brain chemical, brain disease and medication model to be a flawed monster and the medication regime to be abhorrent and inhumane with a strong taint of cooperation with the covering up of child rape and other crimes.

John was fortunate enough to have obtained the services of Dr Julian Lim when he was working in Toowoomba but unfortunately we lost connection for a while. Reconnecting with an experienced and well qualified trauma informed evidence based professional make him the safest and the most knowledgeable professional I have engaged with and this has been transformational for me. Dr Lim has my full and confident recommendation. Dr Julian Lim
