Following COPIED message has now been distributed amongst Private Schools in SEQ:
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.
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‘.
From what’s becoming known, Salvation Army is by far the last of Institutions having been caught out for fixing of “Hush Money, NDAs & Deed-of-releases” forced agreements, with unrepresented Minors-Students-Victims. Whilst these matters are now viewed as appealing, they were an expected action within various Institutions.
ABC Radio Recorded the following
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.

I am trying to deal CSA issues from my childhood. JustGiving for Adults Surviving Child Abuse because my Report lodged with Royal Commission & counselling:
It is with bewilderment that some Survivors of CSA bring forward their stories and certain ‘foundations of society’ do not show any compassion, only displaying defence. Throughout the current Royal Commission in Australia, I have experienced challenges and legal threats, for somethings included in my own “Coping Mechanisms”.
From the growing multitude of evidence, witnesses and cited Institutions – Australia is truly `leading the way’ amongst our world’s countries. This is truly a much-needed change, away from a long-term culture of “Hidden Secrets”.
