the rapist needs this emotional support too. They have a long and painful
childhood from which they need a great deal of help to recover. It is this
healing that will enable them to accurately identify the perpetrators of the
violence they suffered and about whom they have so many suppressed (and now
projected) feelings which need to be felt and safely expressed. You need a lot
of empathy and the capacity to listen to address violence in this context meaningfully
and effectively. You also need it to raise compassionate and powerful children
in the first place.....
