Raising awareness of abuse linked to faith and spirituality

Religious doctrines often support the caring of the most vulnerable amongst us; children. Sadly it is not uncommon for adults to justify child abuse and neglect with religious doctrines. Both of these phenomena can occur in just about every religious organisation and community. Religious abuse is abuse administered under the guise of religion, including harassment or humiliation, which may result in psychological trauma. This workshop will explore the nature of child abuse linked to faith, belie and spirituality.
