#MeToo in Church: Finding Our Voices, Finding Our Healing

July 12, 201911:00 am11:50 am
I will briefly tell my own story and my familiarity as a therapist with the reality of abuse in churches. This will include some of the aspects of in-church abuse that make it particularly difficult to anticipate, identify, speak about, get help.. Then I will invite participants to share their stories with those at their table as they feel comfortable and able. To facilitate this discussion, I will pose some questions, emphasize that sharing is encouraged and often helpful but absolutely not required, and that “what is said here stays here”. We will conclude with suggestions for finding our voices and finding healing.
