Trauma-Informed Lens Podcast
Religious Trauma with Andrew Jasko
Posted on November 18, 2020
Andrew Jasko joins the podcast to discuss his work with religious and spiritual trauma.
More about Andrew:
For many people, belonging to a religious group is one of the most important aspects of their lives, but at the same time, it can be psychologically traumatizing. Harmful religious teachings can crush your self-worth and self-esteem, leaving you anxious, sexually repressed, isolated, and powerless. Questioning your religious beliefs can be a terrifying and lonely process and losing your religion can feel like you’re losing everything and having to start over from scratch all by yourself in a state of overwhelming confusion and anxiety. People who have left a religious group may even suffer from Religious Trauma Syndrome.
As a former Princeton Seminary educated minister, I had to leave my religious faith and community because of the severe psychological trauma I experienced over and over again. After spending thousands of hours and dollars on my healing, I am considered an expert in healing religious trauma. My clients hire me to heal and reclaim a healthy, authentic connection with spirituality on their own terms, and to fulfill their dreams. I’m Andrew Jasko, Master of Divinity (M.Div.), MFT Trainee, and I help you transform your trauma into the place of your power and discover a healthy, authentic spiritual practice that works for you.
