Griswold Participates in CPT Conference

Oct 26, 2018

As part of the Center for Pastor Theologians Conference, Trinity’s Counseling Center Director Stephanie Griswold, Psy.D., recently took part in a panel discussion on how the church in general and pastors in particular can help care for victims of trauma and abuse.

“The panel had a wide range of voices, from a person who was an academic theologian, a person who was a pastor and a psychologist, and myself,” said Griswold. “Overall, the conference was trying to equip and challenge pastors to bridge conversations about faith and the field of mental health.”

The panel also explored how the Gospel addresses and offers healing to the most victimized and vulnerable in human communities.

This year’s conference, “The Art and Science of Spiritual Formation,” took place from Oct. 22-24. The annual event is hosted at Calvary Memorial Church in Oak Park, Ill., where Griswold attends. Next year’s conference, which will explore “A Christian Vision of Technology,” will take place from Oct. 14-16, 2019.
