  1. Charlene; Thanks for your response. I have been involved in PADVN since it's beginning and was on staff as it was being developed. The leadership team would all agree with this. In fact, we have done training with 3 different seminaries when we have met face-to-face. This is not an issue that is taught in all seminaries and when it is, it's brief. With the stats out there, it is an issue that EVERY congregation will be impacted by. We will continue to push for education in presbyterian seminaries. I'm so glad you are a SURVIVOR! Sandi

  2. As an abuse survivor I know the damage this can do esp. to a person's mind and most pastors are not trained or understand it's far reaching effects. I would love to see it become a part of the the seminary training since it is so common in this time.
