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.

Sandy Hook Lessons

Dear Father,
 
We thought that you might find of interest this recent article on a number of factors that contributed to the terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary school last December.
 
Although the state of Connecticut failed to identify causes of violent rage in youth, they include unresolved rage from bullying trauma, the compulsive use of violent video gaming, divorce trauma, the availability of guns and the failure of anti-bullying programs to teach youth how to resolve their anger.
 
We hope this article will be helpful in your priestly ministry.
 
 
 
God bless.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Rick Fitzgibbons, M.D.
