4 thinking patterns and workplace sexual offences

Taken from Psychology Today. (Ref follows) …

Four thinking patterns figure prominently in the commission of sexual offenses in the workplace.

The pursuit of power and control.  A critical part of the perpetrator’s self-image is being able to dominate others.  He proceeds to do this as he pursues whomever he finds attractive.

A sense of uniqueness. Everyone is unique – physically, psychologically, and experientially. But the person who engages in sexual harassment, assault, or rape considers himself one of a kind.  Part of this self-perception is his certainty that he is irresistible to women, the answer to every woman’s desires.  When it comes to right and wrong, he makes his own rules.

Deception. These individuals are often extremely intelligent, charismatic, and talented.  Even people who know them well cannot conceive that they are even capable of exploiting others sexually. Such predators are masters of deceit.

An ability to compartmentalize and shut off fear of consequences. Perpetrators of sexual harassment, assault, and rape know right from wrong.  They are fully aware of the potential consequences of being apprehended.  They have an uncanny ability to ignore them long enough to do what they want, all the while maintaining a sense of invincibility. They eliminate considerations of conscience behaving as they please without regard to emotional, physical, or other damage they might inflict. When they are unmasked, their chief regret is getting caught with little or no remorse for the victim.  Instead, they regard themselves as victims because of the unpalatable consequences they must face.

As the issue of sexual predation in the workplace has become increasingly prominent, there are calls to provide employees with special training to minimize this behavior in the future.  Such training will not change the character (i.e., the thinking processes) of predators.  What it may succeed in is establishing clear policies and deterrents so that potential predators may be deterred from engaging in this extremely destructive behavior at work.

Fiddler update?

Of interesting note, that after the passing of (Anthony) Kim Buchanan has been confirmed, Michael Golding (music) has started to appear in Searches on this CSA-BBC site & Allan Bradley has (surprise surprise) been elevated in the Catholic Church Hierarchy.

Again, I am willing to travel to far distances to meet with any Old Collegian, for a simple exchange of ‘I know, I was there too’ & give anyone a special LivingWell Booklet. These are kept on many CSA Survivours’ bedsides, as they are particularly written for male Survival.

knowmore & CARC websites have great lists of Counsellors & Supports, throughout Australia. There’s also advice about many questions you have for the National Redress Scheme!

Hell freezes over … ?

In the awaited days before the final report from #caRoyalComm, some of the deepest volleys have been made. Amongst the tidal wave of sexual immorality of the Entertainment Industry, no punches are being pulled with Cardinal Pell (Catholic) & Graeme Russell Lawrence (Anglican) leaders being brought before Australian Courts. Notice a pattern forming here? …

St Stannies an Iceberg’s Tip?

IMG_0595If canning is rated as #ChildSexualAbuse, there may be many more Schools responsible 4 abuses from their staff (the Herald). Following the public revelation that a NSW Catholic School (St Stannies, Bathurst) had begun apologising for Abuses suffered from staff, the Final Report of the Royal Commission of Institution Responses to Child Abuse is awaited in Dec 17. 6 months to go & entire schools are making apologies. Imagine what could be had, with schools covering entire groups of deceptive teachers, covering abuse of the students, paying amounts of ‘hush money’ for families to remain silent, while the entire time not revealing these public truths to incoming students or their families (targets?).

Fairview & BBC

Following my discussions with related Commissioners, Staff & Counsellors, I’ve realised that many of these Perpetrators had been networking at both a Deceptive, Illegal & Perpeated level. Through these moments, they’ve been able to manipulate, coerce, psychologically abuse & so on with their targets and related community. Disappointed Victims feel robbed, when their own family hide behind a ‘nothing wrong has happened’ veil.

Following recent doco on Fairview (WA) by British Child Abuse Investigators & ABC 730 Report pieces, the targeting of vulnerable & low-SES people has been confirmed (BBC Old Boys’ Busaries are immediately brought into question). A deeper Legal concern, may also be mounting: were these ‘academic awards’ granted, as an automated deception of regular, pre-planned CSA Abuse?

Parental (Family) Withdrawal & CSA

As further demonstration of what’s been predicted, my own mother had reacted to my eventual Phone call with them that “(I) had chosen to never speak with them”. Even though I tried to correct her, by reminding them of what I had previously said before my moving into my new Residence: She had earlier agreed that “after I finish a large amount of moving, I’d be able to speak with her”. As further proof that she no longer uses their earlier ‘promise’ to “always use a written diary, as a 3rd-eye POV for (my) history”, I again tried to remind her of this – to which she reacted in denial/tension. It appeared that SKR was (again) ‘pulling the strings’ of EMB’s actions. I even had a chance to discuss `with them that I’d been told by my Legal Staff that I did have oppurtunity to ask NVS & others to vacate my Court Case with SKR. EMB seemed to ignore this. Remainder of call was EMB pausing, not answering & disagreeing. Unsurprisingly, EMB had ended this Phone call – after stating that I didn’t call her anymore!?

Of concern was that EMB recalled portions of other CSA Survivors’ history, yet seemed to remain in complete denial that I had endured any of mine – despite being under their ‘parental adult’ care for all of it.

Updated understanding : CSA

Something which causes an amount of misunderstanding is how other people, unaffected by child sexual abuse only believe that there is only one form of abuse. Anything else is simply ‘imagined’. The Royal Commission clearly outlines CSA:

physical abuse;

sexual abuse;

emotional abuse;

verbal abuse;

social abuse;

economic abuse; and

spiritual abuse.
