  •  Minefield, indeed. (7+ / 0-)

    Most of those I know working in this area are acutely aware of the double-edged sword.  That's why a full and fair investigation to bring all the facts to light is so important.  We need to protect our children but we need to do it in a manner that won't cause further trauma.  The people who do this work are, for the most part, quite dedicated; however, they are human and mistakes can be made.  Unfortunately, a mistake in this area can cause significant damage.  Then again, too much caution can allow abuse to continue if it is indeed occurring.  Holding back on outright accusations and focusing on fact gathering is essential.  A determination can only be made properly upon an honest evaluation of all the facts.  It can be an effort to set aside emotion, but it is vital to avoid bias.

    You are my brother, my sister.
