The Impact of Trauma on Spiritual Formation & Development

A Story-Informed Trauma Therapy Supplemental

This 5-hour video training addresses the impact of trauma on spiritual formation and religious practice. Trauma impacts every part of life. If the trauma victim is a religious person or someone raised in a religious home, the trauma will have shaped their spiritual experience. This is especially true in cases where the trauma took place in a religious environment or where the perpetrator was a trusted religious leader or parent.

This is a Story-Informed Trauma Therapy supplemental course. It is designed to augment and extend the SITT training. This particular module is also appropriate for pastors and other helping professionals who want to understand the impact of trauma on spiritual formation.
