Our View on Abuse & Trauma

Mending the Soul believes that trauma caused by humans is overwhelmingly pervasive in the world, and is often the root cause of society’s most vexing problems. When abuse trauma is properly addressed it transforms individuals, marriages, friendships, families, parenting, communities, and nations.

It is imperative to shift society’s views and ways of addressing abuse. Mending the Soul exists to educate local and global leaders in an informed and compassionate response to abuse.

We understand the depth of pain associated with trauma, and shine a light on abuse, bringing it out of the dark. We believe in healing the survivors of abuse and breaking the cycle of inter-generational bondage, by equipping those who have suffered the most, to heal and help others within their communities.

We have confidence in professional therapy’s valuable role in the treatment of abuse trauma, thus it is not our intent to replace it. Rather, we seek to provide healing resources to those who do not have access to a well trained, trauma-informed therapist, or cannot afford one.

MTS also knows the body of Christ can offer long-term support that transcends the limits of individual psychotherapy. Furthermore, we believe the most complete soul healing from abuse trauma results from a combination of theologically-precise and psychologically-informed curricula.
