C.A.T - Christianity Awareness Training For Clinicians And Educators
This page has been provided for those who are clinicians and educators whose main work and occupation is outside a Christian context. Attached is the brief and paper from the poster presentation of C.A.T. - Christianity Awareness Training paper given at the recent ICSA Conference in Dallas, Texas in July 2016. Feel free to contact us and to dialogue with us. The purpose of this paper is so that those who have engaged with Christians who have been abused or who abuse can view those of a variety of faiths in a less pathologized fashion. We realize many people of all spiritual orientations may visit. If you consistently see those recovering from spiritual abuse as members of non-mainstrem coercive groups, it is a form of "othering" that may be likely to throw the baby out with the bathwater without some time taken to understand the genuine good motives and activities with which some may have been involved, along side those activities that have been harmful. Thanks for stopping by. You are welcome here.
This is the full length C.A.T. - Christianity Awareness Training Paper Rev 1.0b - It is downloadable and printable, but it is long (50-60 pages). We hope you will read it and reflect upon it thoughtfully.

This is the eight page "Brief" for Christianity Awareness Training Rev 7.0e - It is downloadable for quick reading online. The brief contains the questions, suggested guidelines and "trigger" words, but is not sufficient (it's missing the "meat" of the paper) by itself. Please read the full paper, then copy this section down to help you
think about possible bias and prejudice when working with Christians.
