Most of the material in this resource center began with lectures presented in a class entitled "Pastoral Care and Abuse" at Fuller Theological Seminary. So. . . some of it will probably feel like the kind of stuff that might be helpful to pastors-in-training. You will notice in particular that some of the recommended reading is books or articles from theological journals. Also expect this material to feel fairly protestant and generally evangelical (or post-evangelical, semi-evangelical, quasi-evangelical) in tone — if these things are ‘triggers’ for you, I encourage you to do what you need to do to take care of yourself. You and your well-being are far more important than anything you will find on a web page. Practice good self care.
I hope you will find something here that is helpful. My best advice is: Take what works and leave the rest.
May your roots sink deeply in the soil of God’s love,
