Kathy Reid

The Role of the Faith Community in Preventing and Healing Child Sexual Abuse

Join Rev. Kathy Reid, Executive Director of Family Abuse Center (Waco, TX), as she discusses the ways faith communities can support child victims and adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse in their healing. Faith leaders, health ministers, and trauma-informed congregations can “speak the unspoken” setting a precedent for prevention work, as well as addressing the impact that the childhood trauma of sexual abuse can have for adults, who frequently suffer physical, psychological and emotional impacts. An informed understanding of childhood sexual abuse is essential to work addressing many concurrent issues such as homelessness, addiction, suicide prevention, self-harm, and chronic health concerns.

Pastoral Care Issues: Addressing the End-of-Life Needs of Survivors of Sexual Assault / Domestic Violence

Presenter: Rev. Dr. Sarah Rieth

As survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual abuse reach the end of their lives, many are longing to find peace, integration, and validation of their life experiences. Their stories of survival and coping may have left them struggling for many years with faith issues, such as forgiveness, suffering, and shame.

Rev. Dr. Sarah Rieth, a chaplain at a long-term-care retirement home, has shared in many such conversations. Her work focuses on helping survivors find understanding of their place with God and peace at the end of their lives.
