‘It’s not about the money’ - legal processes for facilitating ‘justice’ for survivors of institutional childhood sexual abuse

Nicola Ellis , John Ellis

The work of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has generated a context in which more survivors of child sexual abuse are feeling able to disclose the abuse. By the end of 2017, more than 8,000 people will have participated in a private session with one of the six Royal Commissioners. Although the private session list is now closed, survivors are still coming forward. This presentation summarises the options for survivors to hold perpetrators and institutions accountable for the psychological harm arising from the childhood abuse.

Nicola Ellis

Nicola Ellis has practised law for more than 20 years, specialising in child protection. Nicola is also a psychotherapist with qualifications in Social Ecology, Analytical Psychology, and Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy. These two fields of law and psychotherapy have provided a firm, trauma-informed grounding for the claim process developed by Ellis Legal. Together, John and Nicola have developed a non-adversarial, collaborative claims process that seeks to hold institutions accountable and to generate the possibility of meaningful reparation for survivors. This legally-principled approach seeks to combine proper legal outcomes with therapeutic experiences that support long-term trauma recovery.
