Description

When Faith Hurts: Equipping the church for faithful response to child abuse and it's implications for congregational care


This conference prepares participants to recognize and respond to cases of sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect. Conference sessions will discuss in detail the impact of child abuse on a victim's sense of spirituality and will offer concrete suggestions for working with medical and mental health professionals to assist a child in coping with maltreatment. Participants will learn ideal child protection policies for a faith based institution, including handling a situation in which a convicted sex offender seeks to join a congregation. The conference includes a review of various child abuse case scenarios and a discussion on appropriate and inappropriate responses.

Intended Audience
Clergy, church staff, chaplains, youth ministers, children’s ministers, deacons, elders, faith leaders, Christian counselors, Stephen ministers, Christian camp directors and staff, and other members of a faith community who may work with children or families impacted by child abuse

"Until attending this workshop, I really had no idea how far our culture has been damaged by child abuse. I had heard the stats before but hearing the stories and seeing the faces of victims did something to me. It helped me understand better why my child safety director has been so adamant to invest in preparing our camp team. Thanks for educating me in a way that allows me to create a safer camp for my campers and counselors."
