SC04 Health, Pain, & Trauma

“The capacity to give one’s attention to a sufferer is a very race and difficult thing; it is almost a miracle; it is a miracle.”

Simone Weil

How do you give comfort to those who are sick or in pain? What do you do if the physical or mental pain cannot be eased? Can one be healed without being cured? What does it mean to be “healthy”? What does trauma-informed spiritual care look like?

SC04 Health, Pain, & Trauma – mental health, chronic pain, stress, depression, suicide, abuse, trauma, and healing. Register for SC04 Health, Pain, & Trauma.
