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.

Excessive Anger, Sadness and Insecurity in the Children of Divorce (COD)

Dear Father,

We hope the new article on our child website on the healing of the emotional pain in the children of divorce may be of assistance in your priestly ministry to couples in conflict and youth.

The proceedings of a two day conference in April 2012 that examined the effects of divorce on children, held at the St. John Paul II Pontifical Institute for Studies in Marriage and Family at Catholic University, will be available within the year.  The book will be entitled Adult Children of Divorce: Recovering Origins and will include my chapter on children of divorce: conflicts and healing.

Sincerely in Christ, 

Rick Fitzgibbons, M.D.
