Videos on abuse in Buddhist communities

The following videos, recorded during the 16th Sakyadhita Conference in 2019, are useful for understanding:

– in monastic and non-monastic settings
– in both Asia and in the West
– the typical responses of organisations to those who are abused
– and the process that communities go through as abuse is revealed.
