Honoring Survivors' Spiritual Needs: Supporting Jewish, Catholic, and Muslim Survivors of Domestic Violence


Hosted by: National Resource Center on Domestic Violence

Date: September 24, 2020

Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

Description: For many survivors, spirituality and religious beliefs are an integral part of their healing journey. Through that lens, survivors make sense of their situations, consider their options, and make decisions. As advocates, we must recognize the importance of this influence and should learn ways to provide the support they need while respecting survivors’ faith traditions. This webinar will help advocates adopt a faith-sensitive lens and will offer best practices for supporting families who are guided by their faith. Participants will learn how faith can be a resource or a barrier to hope, help, and healing; gain insight into faith-specific understandings; be aware of best practices and resources for engaging faith leaders as allies; and explore strategies for working with faith leaders in their communities.

Target audience: Faith Based Organizations, SA and DV programs
