Have you ever wondered how to carry Christ’s love into the challenging spaces where trauma resides? Dr. Catherine Jackson, known affectionately as Dr. J, graces our podcast with her deep understanding of neuropsychology and trauma-informed therapy. As we walk through Mental Health Awareness Month, we peel back the layers of trauma’s impact on our church communities and the crucial role of creating safe, healing environments.

This episode is a heartfelt exploration of the ways we, as a church body, can better recognize and respond to the pain beneath the surface. From the importance of simple gestures like a cup of coffee invitation to the transformative power of patient listening, we discuss the balance between sharing and oversharing within our faith communities. We also delve into the significance of trauma response, especially in women’s ministries, and how leadership can navigate these sensitive realms with compassion and grace.

As we wrap things up, we contemplate how mental health support teams could revolutionize care within the church, mirroring the compassion Jesus exemplified. We also prepare for our next meaningful conversation with Lainey Gibney on trauma-informed foster parenting. Join us for this rich dialogue that promises to empower you with wisdom and empathy, ensuring that everyone feels seen, known, heard, loved, and valued – because that’s exactly what Jesus would do.
