06/01/2016 - Reproductive Coercion and the Intersection of Intimate Partner Violence and Faith Beliefs (Part 2)

When: 06/01/2016 , 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: Women’s reproductive health and choices are an ongoing area of cultural and religious dispute. When the abusive use of power and control is extended into an intimate relationship, very often a woman’s ability to make choices about her body, her family, and her future are taken from her by an abuser. Toni Bond Leonard will discuss the complex intersection of reproductive coercion with religion. Part 1, which is scheduled for Mar 30, will explore the ways that reproductive and sexual coercions are strategies within the abusive dynamics of power and control. The two webinars are related in topic, but stand alone.

06/15/2016 - A Survivor's Faith Journey: The Nomadic Spirituality of Home

When: 06/15/2016 , 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: “Spiritual homelessness” names the internal displacement that many abuse survivors experience. Survivors who turn to their religious traditions for support and healing often come to realize that the dominant metaphors and images of God, the languages of sin, and the explanations of suffering no longer fit. Refusing to accept the ideas that suffering is redemptive or is the will of God may be misunderstood by the faith community as rebellious or resistant. So survivors look elsewhere. They search. Reclaiming profound practices such as pilgrimage, and the metaphors of pilgrimage, offer a way to understand a survivor’s nomadic spiritual journey as a quest for a spiritual home after trauma, and a way to explore how God makes her home within us.
