This is a very rich and informative course. One suggestion: In addition to the researchers and mental health practitioners, I would very much like to hear more from survivors as themselves, not just those who are working on research projects or therapy practices. Their subjects and clients, possibly on a panel discussion would be very valuable. The other feedback I would give is that many of us are still involved our faith communities and while we all go through a process of deconversion, it does not always result in becoming atheist or totally losing our faiths. The course started out seeming to me that there is no room for us and that deconversion/conversion to atheism the goal of healing from religious trauma. Toward the end, a greater tolerance seemed to be present and I appreciated it. Thank you for this course and all your work at the GCRR. Less

This training was robust and had speakers from various countries around the globe. I learned a lot about how religious abuse impacts the nervous system and about how to heal client's relationships with spirituality. I appreciated learning about the African and African American experiences of the impacts of religion and how religion has been used as a tool of colonialism. I would love to have more indigenous speakers talk about how religious abuse impacted their communities. I would also like to hear from more Latine voices since religion is very strong in Latin American countries. Overall the training was excellent, I would just like even more racial and ethnic diversity to dive even deeper into how religious abuse has impacted various types of communities. Less

Absolutely amazing learning experience

I had really high expectations going into this course, and it surpassed all of them. As a survivor of religious trauma in multiple cults and churches, I found all of the presentations to be incredibly validating and helpful. I'm so thankful that there's a program like this to educate therapists, coaches, advocates, and survivors!

This course has been tough, bringing up a lot of issues, but one of the best I have taken in a long time. It is well worth the money! Thank you!

The journey through this certification process was well worth the heaviness and difficult reminders of my religious trauma. I recommend this program for all clinicians as it should be required to be incorporated into psychology graduate institutions. The only critical and compassionate feedback I would give is that some of the teachers/lecturer's trauma and anger(all understandable) sometimes obstructed their presentation and research. As we all walk through this together and find healing, these things will adjust and transform programs like these. Thanks again! Less

The courses were diverse, research based, very thorough and engaging. I would recommend this certification course as these courses increased my knowledge of Religous Trauma.

The Religious Trauma Certification Course was empowering. There was a wealth of information that will indeed assist me with serving my community. Though the course was long and will take some, it is self-paced and easy to absorb.

Very thought provoking and helpful information in the presentations. Our religious institutions would serve people better if they were trauma informed.

When I accidentally came across this program, the topics to be presented were of interest to me personally and professionally. Having survived episodes of religious trauma myself, I hoped that these presentation would be comforting and healing for my past experiences. Also as a hospice chaplain, the selections will be of benefit when dealing with patients and families who have divorced themselves from their own spiritually/religious background and express a desire to reconcile their past traumatic experiences by reestablishing their connections with their understanding of the divine at EOL.

I am overflowing with gratitude as I stand on the other side of completing the Certification course for Religious Trauma Studies from the Global Centre for Religious Research. This journey has been nothing short of transformative, and I am filled with awe and reverence for the knowledge and insights gained. The impact of religious trauma is far-reaching and often goes unnoticed. Throughout this course, I have delved deep into understanding the profound ways in which religious beliefs and experiences can leave lasting scars on individuals' psyches and emotional well-being. It has been both heart-wrenching and empowering to confront the reality of religious trauma and learn how to support and aid those who have been affected. I am eager to apply what I have learned to my work and personal life, and I am filled with hope for a future where individuals can heal from religious trauma and thrive in their own spiritual journeys. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to engage in this profound study and to be a part of such a forward-thinking and compassionate community. Here's to spreading awareness and fostering healing for all those impacted by religious trauma. #TraumaInformedCoaching Less

This is an amazing course. The information is well organized. The presenters all do a fantastic job of sharing their passion, experiences, insight, and research. Understanding the extent and ways in which adverse religious experiences can and do impact people was eye opening. My understanding of what religious trauma is barely scratched the surface of what it truly entails on a global scale. Further, I see how this course gives a language and voice to those who may be suffering in silence. I will also add that this course was presented in ways that respect and support people of all beliefs. This isnโ€™t an attack against religion, it is an honest review of the practices and ideologies that can and have caused harm. Less

As a survivor of severe ongoing childhood abuse, not directly caused by but deeply influenced by the Evangelical Church culture I was raised in, I find the presentation by Dr. Paula Windle and Dr. Craig Cashwell on religious abuse within Christian contexts both harrowing and validating. Their discussion on the multifaceted nature of religious abuse, encompassing emotional, physical, and spiritual dimensions, resonates profoundly with my experiences. Growing up, I was taught not to question authorities, to follow prescribed norms rigidly, and to seek immediate forgiveness for any perceived sin. This environment fostered a sense of perpetual fear and guilt, severely impacting my mental health and leading to diagnoses of PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Severe Chronic Major Depression, and Borderline OCD. The expectation of unquestioning obedience and conformity within the religious community I was part of contributed significantly to my trauma, compelling me to suppress my painful memories rather than confront and process them. The presentation astutely highlights the systemic issues within mainstream religious organizations, extending beyond the egregious examples of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church or cults. It speaks to the subtler yet equally damaging forms of emotional and spiritual manipulation that can occur under the guise of religious authority. This perspective is crucial, as it acknowledges the trauma of those who might not have experienced overt abuse but have nonetheless suffered under oppressive religious structures. My journey of healing and self-discovery, prompted by the realization of the hypocrisy within the Evangelical community, led me to pursue a career as a Certified Registered Peer Recovery Specialist. This role has enabled me to assist others adversely affected by extreme religious views. In my work with an Assertive Community Treatment Team Mental Health Treatment Organization, I encounter numerous individuals whose mental health has been impacted by similar experiences. The shift within the Evangelical community from a caring, inclusive body to one marked by radicalism and exclusion is a crucial point of departure for my critique. There was a time when Evangelicals were known for their compassion towards the hurting, irrespective of religious or political affiliations. This transformation starkly contrasts the teachings of Jesus Christ, who preached love, kindness, and acceptance. The presentation underscores this discrepancy, urging mental health professionals and religious leaders alike to adopt a more trauma-informed, empathetic approach to care and community building. Forgiving my family and community for the abuse I endured does not negate the right to feel anger and seek accountability. My advocacy is not just personal; it calls for a broader reformation within religious communities to return to their core values of love and service. This is not merely about exposing the wrongs of the past but about fostering a future where religious spaces are safe, nurturing, and genuinely reflective of the teachings of Christ. In conclusion, the transcript is a compelling call to action for all, especially within the Christian community, to introspect and realign with the fundamental teachings of compassion and empathy. It's a necessary conversation that paves the way for healing and inclusive growth, not just for individuals like myself but for the entire religious community. Less

GCRR is shining light on a critical and overlooked type of psychological trauma-religious trauma. As a Christian therapist, I have found their work informative and empowering. I highly recommend GCRR's material to all who may have been affected by this trauma or whose professional work requires that they be knowledgeable of it.

I have just completed the Religious Trauma Certification Course and I can honestly say it has had a profound effect upon me. My reaction on listening to a lot of the lectures has been horror at the damage that fundamentalist, evangelical Christianity in America is causing and at first I felt it was far removed from the Christianity that I know and practice. The training has given me a new direction, in both my church leader role and as a counsellor. I was a little wary, on first starting the course, that the talks would be heavily anti-religion, but I was encouraged to see that there was a balance and that healthy spirituality and religion are given recognition as well as the negative, dark side to religion. Thank you for the work that you are doing. Any Christian who is trying to live up to the high calling of Christ's teachings will be of course, troubled, saddened and angry at the abuse and damage that has been done in the name of Christ but at the same time glad that it has been exposed, through work such as yours, so that change can happen.

The Global Center for Religious Research (GCRR) is a fantastic organization that brings together scholars from all over the world to study religion in a non-biased and academic way. They don't have an agenda to promote or abolish any religion but rather aim to understand and explore every aspect of religion, including its origins and how it affects global systems today. GCRR is a place where scholars can ask questions and investigate the beliefs and practices of different religions. By studying the scientific, philosophical, and historical aspects of religion, they aim to gain a deeper understanding of how beliefs have evolved over time and why they continue to play a significant role in people's lives. What's great about GCRR is that they encourage interdisciplinary and cross-cultural approaches to studying religion. This means that scholars from different fields, such as the arts, humanities, and social sciences, can collaborate and learn from each other. It's a place where intellectual freedom is valued, and critical thinking is encouraged. Overall, the Global Center for Religious Research is an excellent place for anyone interested in learning more about religion in an academic setting. The scholars there are dedicated to promoting the highest standards of scholarship and fostering a forum for rigorous academic discussion and debate. I am definitely excited to see the future work and contributions of the Global Center for Religious Research! Less
