BOOK DESCRIPTION: “Anderson strikes a smart, balanced tone. . . . An exemplary guide to an understudied issue.”–Publishers Weekly
“An exposé of the dangers of high-control religions that makes it easier to recognize and resist religious abuse.”–Foreword Reviews
Religious trauma is something that happens far more often than most people realize. But religious trauma is trauma.
In When Religion Hurts You, Dr. Laura Anderson takes an honest look at a side of religion that few like to talk about. Drawing from her own life and therapy practice, she helps readers understand what religious trauma is and isn’t, and how high-control churches can be harmful and abusive, often resulting in trauma. She shows how elements of fundamentalist church life–such as fear of hell, purity culture, corporal punishment, and authoritarian leaders–can cause psychological, relational, physical, and spiritual damage.
As she explores the growing phenomenon of religious trauma, Dr. Anderson helps readers embark on a journey of living as healing individuals and finding a new foundation to stand on. Recognizing that healing is a lifelong rather than a linear process, she offers markers of healing for those coming out of painful religious experiences and hope for finding wholeness after religious trauma.
