Casey Clardy.

2018 Conference - The Spirituality of Trauma: How to Navigate Faith Issues when Patients are Healing from Trauma
Jesse Malott; A growing body of psychological literature is placing emphasis on faith, meaning, and purpose as having significant roles in trauma outcomes, both positive and negative. The purpose of this workshop will be to increase the clinician’s understanding of the spiritual and mental health sequelae following traumatic events, how to navigate unique cultural and individual factors that can impact the healing process, and practical steps the clinician can take to improve resilience and growth before and after traumatic events.
Survivors of crime, abuse, combat, and disaster constitute just a few of the groups of people who may struggle with the emotional, physical, and spiritual consequences of trauma. Trauma has long lasting impact upon anatomy of the brain, core relationships, and issues of faith. This workshop will provide a basic understanding of the etiology of post-traumatic distress and associated previous disease or injuries. In addition, the workshop will explore practical tools and skills for healthcare providers, key theological insights regarding trauma and recovery, and helpful pastoral responses to support trauma survivors.
