Facing Clergy Induced Trauma

Healing From Clergy Induced Trauma

Recommended 3 – 6 Individual Sessions 

Dealing with an abusive husband requires tremendous energy, the last thing a woman needs is additional trauma from ecclesiastical leaders. When a women seeks support from church leaders, the hope is to receive empathy, compassion and understanding. However, more often than not, this does not happen. The tools you can receive in these sessions will help you navigate what we at BTR call “Ecclesiastical Leadership Trauma” (a form of secondary betrayal trauma) with the following tools:

  • Tools to communicate the abuse, sexual addiction, and betrayal trauma to your church leader
  • What you have a right to expect from a church leader when you tell him about the lies, abuse, and infidelity
  • What to do when you don’t receive what you deserve from a church leader
  • What to do when you are a victim of gaslighting, blame-shifting, or emotional abuse from your church leader
  • Learning to set boundaries while also practicing principles of love, service, and forgiveness
  • Avoiding the trap of shame and guilt in the religious dynamic

In these sessions, you will find a safe place to share concerns, raise questions, receive validation, feedback and tools to anticipate a traumatic experience with your clergy, and how to heal from ecclesiastical trauma.
