Risking Connection® in Faith Communities
Learn about the nature of psychological trauma, how it affects people, and how faith leaders can help. Because this presentation is addressed to spiritual and lay religious leaders, particular attention is paid to the spiritual impact of trauma. We focus on the need for growth-promoting relationships; explore the connection between trauma and spiritual distress; recognize the value of spirituality in recovery; address the impact of trauma on the helper; and looks at how faith communities can promote healing.
