Working with Clients with Religious/Spiritual Abuse

Spiritual abuse, a form of coercion and control within a spiritual context, inflicts deep emotional wounds on victims. This workshop delves into the manifestations of spiritual abuse, including manipulation, enforced accountability, censorship, secrecy, and pressure to conform. Participants will learn how abusers misuse scripture and religious authority, coupled with claims of divine mandate, to dominate victims. The workshop also addresses the isolation victims often face and offers strategies for clinicians to identify and support those affected. By recognizing signs of spiritual abuse, clinicians can play a crucial role in promoting healing and preventing further harm.
