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!
As shocking as it is, it is common amongst Institutions to have ‘the good of the many outweigh the good of the few’. By this it is meant that the power of numbers having more importance than an individual, counter to the ‘beliefs’ of many Institutions. Even families may side for their local club/church/gang, over claims of an individual!
While many parents-elders-leaders may disagree at these events, they are in fact what is known in Psychology as ‘Conditioning‘.
After meeting with another CSA Survivor of Buchanan’s behaviours in the 1980’s, more common traits have stood out. Following a similar meet with a CSA Survivor of Secondary abuse, resulting from Buchanan’s initial abuses, there is no wonder that Institutions (Churches, Schools, Teams etc) invest more in silencing this explosive tigers-dragons-mines!
Names of involved staff will soon be posted…
Following some recent News, Calls & Messages – Living Well has been suggested by knowmore as a suitable Mens focussed Support Group & their partners, friends and family and service providers. Material is starting to be collected, allowing for small gatherings of ‘Peers’ (other guys who survived similar ordeals). So far, responses have been made by Old Collegians of BBC & past students from Ipswich Grammar School is another known location of a convicted ‘Butch‘. Together with knowmore and Living Well, support and assistance is available.
