Faith leaders—and their communities—are often the first place people turn to when bad things happen. More often than not, members of every faith community carry quiet burdens. The leadership and clergy are often stretched thin with unexpected events 24x7 and the silence of their own wounds.

How do we offer the healing balm of care without becoming hospitals or crossing boundaries? How do we frame the more challenging dynamic of becoming community in ways that create places of greater healing for all of the faith community?

In Risking Connection in Faith Communities®, you’ll learn:
• What makes trauma subjective
• The characteristics common to events encoded as traumatic
• Six areas of impact and how they relate to spiritual formation
• How to recognize and address the impact of adverse experiences on spirituality
• The role and spirituality in recovery
• The whats and hows of growth-promoting, healing relationships
• Why and how self-care for everyone in the faith community is critical
• How to increase self-care in simple, effective ways
and more!
