“Pastoral Care for Domestic Violence: Case Studies for Clergy offers invaluable aid to members of the clergy. These vignettes provide authentic responses from clergy who are faced with both survivors and abusers. FaithTrust Institute continues to be the standard bearer in the training of clergy and congregations around the issues of domestic violence and abuse.”
--Rabbi Ruth Alpers, B.C.C., Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion

"This powerful resource offers us clergy the chance to expand our knowledge on domestic violence and challenges us to examine and rethink our own views. It compels spiritual leaders to look more broadly at the ways we respond to victimized women and children, and to the men who violate them. Don't miss this unique opportunity!"
--Rev. Al Miles, Author, Domestic Violence: What Every Pastor Needs to Know
