Rev. Al Miles has just released the second edition of his ground-breaking book, Domestic Violence: What Every Pastor Needs to Know. He will be sharing the highlights of his book in this webinar based on his extensive experience as a pastor and hospital chaplain.
Domestic violence remains a fact of life in our communities, families and churches. Many times a victim/survivor or a perpetrator will go to their pastor rather than to a secular resource. How can a pastor see clearly what is happening and understand what they are seeing so as to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
This recorded webinar will help you:
- Establish the basics about domestic violence which can then inform a pastoral response.
- Understand the specific and important role that Christian leaders can play in responding to victim/survivors and to perpetrators.
- Address some of the thorny pastoral issues such as forgiveness.
- Be aware of best practices in response to victims/survivors and perpetrators and how to make referrals and be a part of a coordinated community response.
