Unit 3: Pastoral Trauma Care

Publisher(s):
This multimedia training seeks to educate clergy and faith-oriented counselors about providing appropriate pastoral trauma care to victims of domestic and sexual violence. Perpetrators of violence do not recognize their victims as unique, worthy of respect. With such deep disregard and dehumanization comes shame: the internal sense of being less than human. How victims make sense of such shame depends to a great extent upon the immediate support they receive and their past religious and spiritual experiences.
