Society needs to take a hard look to make sure such laws are not giving families a false sense of security. Many municipalities are debating whether to ban registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of schools or day care centers. This decision is fool-hardy because if sex offenders are unable to control their compulsions they will find access to children no matter where they live.Incarcerating sex offenders for life doesn't stop sexual child abuse either.
As a society we are 'creating' new sex offenders every day. Sex offenders are men or women, who are sexual or physical abuse survivors and they are using sex with children as a way to cope, to numb or distract themselves from the emotional pain. Frequently, the sex offender is seeking a similar experience to the pain they endured as a child. Unbeknownst to them, they are creating the moth to the flame scenario.
In other words, the offender might believe she/he will never offend again, but when the compulsion to relieve the internal pain becomes too great they will offend. It is a compulsion that she/he can not stop. This compulsion solves the internal pain if only for a brief period albeit at the peril of going to jail. However, since the internal pain is beyond their ability to override its excruciating effect, they can not merely stop their compulsion.
Healing emotional issues for anyone who has sexually abused?no matter the reason?is possible. An innovative and highly effective process to achieve deeper and more total healing can be achieved through healing mind, body and spirit. This process is direct, focused, and combines healing the past while creating the future. You will make a subtle and effective transition to self-discovery and empowerment.
Healing emotional issues at the core addresses the all-important relationship to one's true spiritual nature. Transforming the psychological conditional patterns and unconscious beliefs that arise from our personal histories and adaptations effectively transforms our mind, body and spirit. Thus, you transform how you feel, sense, and experience global political mass consciousness, as well as your individual consciousness, like never before. A Mind, Body, Spirit approach addresses the three critical aspects of one's being, therefore opening the door to true balance and emotional healing.Well-being comes from the understanding of the Self, the family, the local community in which we live, and the global community of which we are a part. We are each one heart of the Whole; each heart here to express its unique piece of the Whole.
Knowing Self creates a sense of "I as a piece of this Whole," different and one at the same time.The real answer to stopping sexual child abuse is stopping what creates people to sexually abuse children and to heal those who are sex offenders..Dorothy M.
