Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Tonight: Penn State case motivates abuse victim to come forward

A woman who was sexually abused as a girl by her tennis coach comes forward to tell her story. Sadly, it may ring true for any number of children who are manipulated by people in power.

And we've heard about kids bullied by kids. But TEACHERS bullying students? A special-needs pupil recorded the shocking verbal abuse she was subjected to by those who were supposed to know better. Dr. Drew's message? We need to change the way we view victims and their abusers, and demand a stop to such behavior now.

Then, a registered sex offender working under an alias, worked as a Hollywood casting director, placing children in films. How can that happen? Answers tonight on Dr. Drew at 9 p.m. ET on HLN.
