The Weaponization of Trauma
Presented byDarby Strickland
There is no doubt that experiencing relational trauma is overwhelming and devastating. But some people use their past trauma as a shield: “I do not need to take responsibility because I have been grievously harmed.” Worse, others use their past trauma as a weapon to justify their destructive or even horrific treatment of others. This session will help you be wise to these dynamics and showcase how Christ's suffering and gentle presence can create a new path toward healing so the sufferer does not duplicate and proliferate their traumatic experiences on others.
