Shattered Soul? Five Pathways to Healing the Spirit after Abuse and Trauma
Abuse of all kinds not only injures the survivor psychologically, the soul and spirit are assaulted as well. These soul wounds often go unnoticed and untreated and can greatly inhibit the healing and recovery process of survivors of abuse and trauma. This experiential presentation will help participants identify spiritual wounds with the safety of their own therapist present with them. Hopefully, sharing the experience will provide a road-map for ongoing therapeutic work together. Together you will discover break-through methods of transforming soul trauma through a spiritual healing process called The Five Pathways:
• Spiritual Courage
• Holy Anger
• Spiritual Transformation.
The work presented is based in the Flemings’ clinical experience of integrating psychological and spiritual treatment processes with survivors of abuse and trauma, and on their book, Shattered Soul? Five Pathways to Healing the Spirit after Abuse and Trauma.

Five Pathways to Healing the Spirit after Abuse and Trauma (WordStream Publishing, 2011) and Broken Trust: Stories of Pain, Hope, and Healing from Clerical Abuse Survivors and Abusers (Crossroad Publishing, 2007).
