Online Course:
Treating Clients with Religious Trauma 

Learn to assess and guide your clients struggling with faith deconstruction and religious trauma through an intersectional feminist lens 

What is Religious Trauma? 

“The condition experienced by people who are struggling with leaving an authoritarian, dogmatic religion and coping with the damage of indoctrination. They may be going through the shattering of a personally meaningful faith and/or breaking away from a controlling community and lifestyle.  RTS is a function of both the chronic abuses of harmful religion and the impact of severing one’s connection with one’s faith.  It can be compared to a combination of PTSD and Complex PTSD (C-PTSD).”   ----  Dr. Marlene Winell, author of "Leaving the Fold - A Guide for Former Fundamentalists and Others Leaving their Religion"
