Circles of Healing: Supporting Survivors in Your Community
October 15, 2014,
11am-12pm Pacific Time
Presenter to be announced

For Christians living with domestic violence, faith can be a roadblock to ending the violence: biblical passages can be used by an abuser to justify the abusive behavior; teachings about marriage and divorce can keep someone in an abusive relationship. But one’s faith and faith community can also be a valuable resource of strength and support when facing this trauma. This webinar will explore both dimensions of faith to help move the church from being part of the problem to being part of the solution to domestic violence.

This webinar will showcase successful models for networking and provide you with skills for your own community setting.
