Evaluation of Accusations Against Priests and Religious

We have extensive experience in evaluating accusations against priests, causes of false accusations and in assisting priests in addressing conflicts in those to whom they minister.

The Justice for Priests new publication to help accused priests is an excellent resource.

Evaluation of Conflicts in Self-Giving

Letter to Priests

Dear Father,
 
We are pleased to announce a new chapter on our child website on the healing of psychological conflicts in adopted children.  We hope that it might be helpful in your priestly ministry with families.
 
Approximately 120,000 children are adopted yearly in the United States.   The majority of the adoptees have no serious mental health problems, although many of them had adverse early experiences.  However, a number of recent studies have demonstrated deeply rooted conflicts in some adoptees. 
 
The history and treatment of excessive anger and mistrust in a girl adopted from Russia is presented which was also described in our  American Psychological Association Books textbook, Helping Clients Forgive: An Empirical Guide for Resolving Anger and Restoring Hope
 
 
 
Sincerely in Christ,
 
Rick Fitzgibbons, M.D.
