Spiritual Life for Youth with Trauma

Deborah Pollex & Kari Docharty

While the intentions of those providing spiritual care to hurting people are well-meaning, there is often little training around the responses common to trauma victims and how to provide spiritual care with trauma sensitivity.  There remains a gap between our awareness of trauma and our knowledge of how to act on this awareness. This workshop helps to build a connection between the two. It will provide practical information and numerous examples of how one goes about integrating knowledge about trauma into spiritual care procedures and practices.
