Yes, we need better rehabilitation programs for victims of sexual abuse and yes it does require some mental health expertise. Following on from the Australian Prime Ministers apology, I believe he has done a great thing for the psyche of victims by acknowledging that there was a problem but it doesn't fix the entire problem. What do you think about Quality programmes for victims of sexual abuse? do we currently have one?
This is a subject close to my heart. Do sexual offenders ever rehabilitate fully? I think once some one has committed a sexual offence be it they were mentally unwell or not, thats it. As far as quality programmes for victims go isn't it the perpetrator that gets all the rights. A stint in jail and then back out to the community. It's sick. No wonder there are so many rapes and sexual interference with children. Why can't they go find their own planet to live on so we don't have to put up with the sick shit.
