Checkin’ Religious Trauma Recovery

Religious Trauma Syndrome is a result of chronic abuses of extremist religions and impact of severing one’s connection with one’s faith. Comparable to a combination of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)  and Complex PTSD (C-PTSD)

My guest today, Andrew Jasko, was formerly a Pentecostal Christian minister and missionary to India. Although religious faith was his life’s passion, Andrew suffered from anxiety, depression, and guilt about sexuality. He left his religion after realizing that biblical teachings were the cause of his distress. Andrew has gone on his healing journey and survived. Now he combines his current studies of psychology with religion from the perspective of trauma and is helping others on their journey.
