This event will explore various aspects of what some term “spiritual abuse.” Spiritual abuse may be viewed as being situated within the broader umbrella of psychological abuse but is a unique and often unrecognized aspect of this broader phenomenon. The societal value placed on religion can sometimes hinder critical evaluation of harmful dynamics and coercive control within religious frameworks. However, ideally religion seeks to bring deeper meaning to one's life; a sense of connection and community; provides a general guide of how to lead healthy, meaningful lives, and connects one to a higher being. This workshop will explore spiritual abuse and explore counseling interventions for clinicians working with those who have experienced abusive spiritual systems and relationships, and their loved ones.
