I see how talking about abusers with mental health professionals, can be harmful. And why.

Psychologists, counsellors, psychiatrists etc, all have to deal with any clients and any behaviours, in a respectful and what is considered ‘non judgmental’ way. And need to remove their emotions, to deal with worst of behaviours.

I see this can lead to a continual emotional disconnect from the reality of the harm highly abusive people cause to their victims.

  1. this statement you wrote is very confusing I watched a psychologist on a TV program about sex the other day and what is considered normal. One person being interviewed was a paedophile. And what he considers as absolutely appropriate sexual contact… It seems as if you did not complete your thought, and since this is a very criminal behavior in and of itself even presenting it in light of your PAS Focus needs an in depth explanation to assess where you are going with this and your views personal or legal on PAS Please, elaborate.
