"Emotional Trauma: Healing the Wounded Soul"
Guest Speaker: Philip Chard, MS

Worship Leader: Stephen Frey

Until recently, the destructive impact of emotional trauma, particularly during childhood, has been grossly underestimated. Today, we know this form of wounding is widespread and has long-term impacts on mental, physical and spiritual well-being. We will examine the nature of emotional trauma, its corrosive effects on life satisfaction, and what we can do to heal the wounded soul.
