Mennonite Girls in a Modern World


Nov 23, 2021

Mennonites are not immune to abuse. In fact, sometimes in closed communities, abuse can thrive when survivors have no access to help or support. Abuse can happen anywhere, and for those who have suffered, the trauma is real.

So how do we process the pain of our experiences and heal?

Today on the show, counsellor Tammy Thielman joins Maria to talk about trauma, the after effects of abuse, and why it’s important to seek help. In this episode, we ask:

  • What is trauma?
  • How does it differ from PTSD?
  • Why can't we pray it away?

***This is an important but painful subject. Please be aware that this content may be sensitive to some of our listeners.***
