''Michael J. Salamon, Ph.D.' s book is so important in that it actually sheds light on this issue and identifies how and why abuse in the Jewish community is less reported and less known than that in the Catholic Church or within other religious groups.''
-Robin Sax, author of It Happens Every Day

About the Author:

Michael J. Salamon, PhD, is the founder and director of the Adult Developmental Center, Inc. (ADC), a comprehensive psychological consulting practice in Hewlett, New York. The ADC specializes in substance abuse and alcoholism counseling; crisis management; child, family, and marital counseling; and gerontology. He is a fellow of the American Psychological Association as well as of the Gerontological Society of America’s Behavioral and Social Sciences Section.

Review:

''Dr. Michael Salamon raises some very important questions about the role of spiritual leaders giving guidance on matters of abuse in the Jewish community. One need not agree with Dr. Salamon on every case he cites to recognize that the issues he addresses must be confronted by the Jewish community and its leadership.'' --Rabbi Hershel Billet

''Dr. Michael Salamon combines years of experience in treating victims of sexual abuse and an intimate knowledge of Orthodox Judaism. In his valuable new book he clarifies the trauma resulting from abuse and the particular impact of religious values in creating difficulties in confronting predators and in therapy. Reading this work will help the community make the changes needed to effectively reduce the present threat to many of our youth.'' --Rabbi Yosef Blau

''Dr. Michael Salamon, a clinical psychologist with 2 decades of experience treating frum victims of abuse, is the author of the newly-released book Abuse in the Jewish Community: Religious and Communal Factors that Undermine the Apprehension of Offenders and the Treatment of Victims (Urim). This excellent, comprehensive book provides harrowing statistics and stories that illustrate the extent as well as the causes of this widespread evil within our midst.

On behalf of all JewishMOMs everywhere I would like to thank Dr. Salamon and his publisher (and mine) Tzvi Mauer as well as Rabbi Blau, who provides the book's haskama, for taking the brave step to publish and support this controversial book in order to keep our children safe, IY''H.'' --Chana Jenny Weisberg, JewishMOM.com
