How Church Communities Respond to Domestic Violence

July 24, 2017

CFT Executive Council member, Dr. Christy Sim, writes about how church communities may have good intentions when it comes to responding to domestic violence, but they too often make mistakes.

“Hopefully, this article will be a start to give the beautiful, big-hearted people in churches, a bit more knowledge and a few more tools to respond to victims of violence in ways that are trauma-informed and survivor-centered.”
