In April of 2016, a ground-breaking distance-learning course on treating Spiritual Trauma made its debut, and the response was overwhelming. EMDR therapists from all over the world registered for the course, and the positive reviews began to pour in. Now in book form and catered to all mental health professionals, this unique publication offers therapists yet another way to receive this sought-after training. In this book, Mark Odland will teach you 7 steps, or principles, to help your clients heal from spiritual trauma, and combine this with insights from EMDR therapy. While this book addresses many forms of spiritual trauma, Mark provides specific guidance for helping those who have experienced shame and condemnation within the church. His 7 steps provide a path for clients to work through their trauma, and in many cases, find renewed spiritual strength. The content of this book years to develop, and reflects the sum-total of Mark's education and experience as a college religion major, 4-year seminary graduate, ordained pastor, LMFT, MN Board-Approved Supervisor, EMDRIA-Certified therapist, and Approved EMDR Consultant with EMDRIA and EMDR-HAP. Because of Mark's background as a pastor, many of his clients seek him out in order to explore their spirituality as part of therapy. As a result, the majority of Mark's stories, metaphors, and case examples draws from his work with Christian clients, many of whom have experienced trauma within organized religion.
