Video: The 2023 Mark Kraai Lecture- Healing the Healers: Trauma Informed Self-Care for Clergy
September 13, 2023
Ideas and concepts that were discussed:
- Clergy should recognize the impact of secondary trauma, their own triggers and the impact the two can have on ministry.
- Clergy should appreciate how a trauma sensitive theology fuels a trauma informed ministry, providing a strength-based approach for preaching and teaching. This helps clergy and those we serve manage the emotions tied to trauma.
- Clergy practices of self-care are integral to effectiveness of ministry.
