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.

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.
