Advanced Sexual Ethics
Below the Surface: Is Your “Stuck” Parishioner a Survivor of Childhood Sexual Trauma?

There is no definite timetable for a person to work through grief or other issues, but when a person seems stuck, or even regressing, it could be a sign of something deeper than the presenting issue. And that deeper issue could be childhood sexual trauma. Participants will: be educated on the current realities of the sexual abuse of children; learn how to discern if there might be a deeper issue at work in the life of their parishioner; and learn when to refer a parishioner for help (and whom to refer them to).

Led by Licensed Professional Counselors Donna Marie Liu and Michael P. D’Angelo of the Center for Pastoral Counseling, and a staff member from the Family Support Line. Participants are encouraged to share any questions they might have for discussion ahead of time, and case studies are welcome. The workshop will be a mix of presentation, discussion, role-playing and reflection. Lunch will be provided.

This discussion will be hosted at Covenant UMC (212 W Springfield Rd, Springfield, PA 19064).
