Post Traumatic Church Syndrome
NOVEMBER 5th - A look at how bad religion can harm you and how to tell if you have the symptoms.
Spiritual abuse doesn't have to be as extreme as 'drinking the Kool Aid' in the Jonestown cultic compound. It can still consist in doctrines, methods, and communities that are harmful to human flourishing. Many people have run from religious harm. Some move to other churches, change religions, are reject religious or spiritual beliefs altogether. This session looks at what is called Post Traumatic Church Syndrome. PTCS has a very recognizable set of symptoms, a definitive set of causes, and a debilitating cycle of abuse. There are ways to stop the abuse and recover.
