Our friend Barbara Anderson, who recently posted this thought-provoking article on Spiritual Abuse, will be participating in an exciting conference at Middle Tennessee State University on Saturday, October the 14th, from 9am to 4:30 pm.

This conference, entitled: “Understanding Abusive Spiritual Systems and Relationships”, will explore spiritual abuse and counseling interventions for clinicians working with those who have experienced abusive spiritual systems and relationships, and their loved ones.

Attendees will be able to identify clinically relevant effects of spiritual abuse, describe three models of clinical intervention with this population, utilize effective skills for assessing spiritual abuse through guided table discussions, and identify the unique clinical needs of children raised in spiritually abusive groups.
