In the next two episodes Valerie will share with you her findings following hundreds of intense hours working with members of the LDS church in faith and trust crisis this past year since she opened up her first growth, processing, and support groups as a trauma therapist serving her own faith community.
These observations might be of particular interest as they come exactly 10 years following the creation of an exhaustive report (linked in full below) created for (then President) Dieter F. Uchtdorf as a way to help LDS general authorities better understand the nature of the suffering of so many members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in faith and trust crises.
Valerie’s analysis in this episode and Friday’s episodes covers the following (among other things):
The current main causes of LDS faith and trust crisis
The emergence of some issues in 2023 that were less prominent in 2013
What people in faith and trust crisis generally are experiencing from a psychological perspective
The relational suffering of those in LDS faith and trust crisis due to the standard rhetoric about “those who doubt”
The psychological interventions that Valerie uses to help people heal from the trauma of faith and trust crisis
How people look and feel as they heal from this experience both in relationship to themselves, others, and the LDS church
Valerie feels a deep personal commitment to help each person who comes to this platform. Thank you for trusting this platform as you work through this challenging but ultimately rewarding experience of spiritual growth!
