Trauma Care After Covid (Webinar)

How can we care well for people in our churches who have experienced trauma during the pandemic?


Watch/Listen on:

FIEC National Director John Stevens was joined for this webinar by Catherine Haddow, a Chartered Psychologist and part-time Women's Worker at North Bradley Baptist Church, to think about how church leaders can care best for those in their churches who have experienced trauma. This is an especially important topic as the effects of the coronavirus pandemic are felt as society opens up more in the coming weeks and months.
