|Email item||Print item||
A series of ‘Shattered Soul’ seminars on healing the spirit after abuse are being organised in Gozo and Malta.
The Church Schools Spiritual Development Unit within the Secretariat for Catholic Education, in conjunction with the Secretariat for the Clergy and the Spiritual Counsellors Coordinator of the Church in Malta are inviting teachers, youth workers, social workers, counsellors, psychologists, therapists and the general public for a series of two-hour seminars on the need to heal deep wounds inflicted by abuse.
The organisers said that abuse of all kinds not only injure the survivor psychologically, but also assaults the soul and spirit.
The seminars will be conducted by Patrick Fleming and Sue Lauber Fleming, both psychotherapists from the United States, “with long experience in helping victims of abuse as well as perpetrators, in particular clerical abusers.”
The seminars offer an experiential presentation that will help participants learn how to identify the spiritual wounds of their clients, and provide a road-map for healing and transforming this soul trauma through a spiritual healing process.
Abuse victims are welcome to request private meetings with the speakers.
