Interviewing Abuse Survivors

by Bhakta Re'em

Posted October 17, 2006

My name is Re'em Stern, and I am a student of Theology in Radhadesh, Belgium. For a course on contemporary social issues in ISKCON I would be interested to interview survivors of physical child abuse on how they cope with their past within ISKCON. Statistics show that child abuse rates increase yearly worldwide, and so it is possible that various ISKCON members are suffering the pain of abuse that occurred outside the movement. Regardless of where the abuse occurred, either within or outside the movement, I would appreciate your cooperation in sharing how you deal with it in your daily lives and in the attempt to always remember Krishna.
