What is spiritual abuse? What impact can the experience of spiritual abuse have on people’s lives and spiritual journey? And when revered religious leaders are found to be practicing the opposite of what they proclaim and stand for, inflicting spiritual abuse on others, what may be going on at a psychological level? This day will help directors look at what spiritual abuse is and isn’t, consider the thresholds of how it could manifest in spiritual direction work and how we hold safe and secure space for others, and look at the issues of working with a directee who feels they have experienced spiritual abuse in a religious context.
**Please note that the cost is dependent on the venue; we will provide more information once we know if this will go ahead as a half-day online event or full-day event held at St Edmund’s.
