    Elder Involvement — Graphic Presentation

    Today I uploaded a new article to my blog that begins publishing a 13-page submission by a Doctor of Psychology that is a Watchtower appointed elder. He had ideas about elder involvement with Jehovah’s Witnesses suffering mental illness, and particularly victims of child abuse, and thought it best to share these with Watchtower.

    My article is titled Elder Involvement — Graphic Presentation and is available at: http://marvinshilmer.blogspot.com/2011/09/elder-involvement-graphic-presentation.html

    Initially this article presents only 3 of the 13 pages. As I have time to ready additional pages I’ll upload them to this article until all 13 are available.

    Being that this brother wrote these documents in 1992, I wonder how he could remain a jw. Everything he warned the gb about has come to fruition. It seems to me that his professional advice was ignored and continues as such right down to this day.

    Thanks for this Marvin . . . I was hoping this was coming. The remaining 10 pages will be just as interesting I'm sure.

    That this issue has been revealed in such detail and put forward with such good intent almost 20 years ago . . . is already rather condemning of the leaderships attitude to it's existence.

    Do you have a copy of this referenced 3/23/92 letter to elders? Has it already been posted on this site?
