Victims of sexual abuse by a religious authority may know what it's like to hold a secret that no one wants to hear; that their abuse happened in a religious environment, where the explicit values represented God and the established authorities were not held accountable. Victims of abuse and betrayal carry similar toxic experiences that can continue to impact their mind and spirit long after the original physical abuse occurred.
Adult male victims of childhood sexual abuse may mourn the loss of knowing what we know or thought we knew about spirituality, as shaped and reinforced by religious authorities, our families, communities and perhaps even educational or governmental insititutions. This mourning process can move us to acknowledge and later reconcile the profound splitting in our bodies, minds, hearts, and souls related to RASA.
This recorded webinar will draw upon Healing the Sexually Abused Heart: A Workbook for Survivors, Thrivers, and Supporters to guide participants through the stages of recovery and the challenges and resources that can help a person who has experienced childhood sexual abuse.
Presenter: Dr. Jaime J. Romo
