Frequently Asked Questions
What groups/population does this program serve?
This program is meant to serve all adults and teens who have suffered from the scourge of abuse or neglect, whether it be physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. This includes, but is not limited to individuals who have been abused by family members, relatives and others. Grief to Grace addresses the resulting psychological, emotional and spiritual trauma.
What is the benefit of mixing victims of clergy abuse with other victims who have been abused in family systems or other institutional settings?
Those who have suffered abuse by members of the clergy have reported that it was extremely helpful for them to hear the many stories of those from the general public who were abused by family members and others. They claim it was very powerful in expanding their notion of who is a “victim” and helped them move from rage and anger into their own grief.
