Category: Grooming and Conversions
Introduction to Grooming and Conversion
Grooming is when an emotional connection is built with another person to gain their trust for the purposes of sexual actives, abuse, financial gain or exploitation. Children and young people can be particularly vulnerable to grooming. Victims of grooming are often targeted online or in society, by a stranger or by someone they know, such as a family member, friend or professional. Groomers may be male or female and can be of any age. Many people do not realise that they are being groomed or are being abused.
Conversion is a similar process of control and manipulation; individuals can become victims of forced conversions to different religions. Forced conversion has a strong association with religion, as individuals are able to influence others to change their religion by undermining their faith. Often, vulnerable people are targeted who have little connection with their own faith and beliefs. In most cases the process may involve threatening behaviour, physical harm or emotional harm.
These processes of grooming and forced conversion can happen both online and in society. Perpetrators will hide their true intentions and may spend a long time gaining the victims trust as well as their families in some situations.
