Benefits of a Religious Trauma Support Group

Religious Trauma
January 18, 20232 min read

Experiencing religious trauma can be deeply distressing and feel extremely isolating, leaving individuals feeling confused, hurt, and disconnected from their faith. A religious trauma support group can provide a safe and supportive space for individuals to share their experiences and feelings, and to receive validation and understanding from others who have had similar experiences.

Here are some of the benefits of joining a community for religious trauma recovery:

  1. Finding community and belonging: A support group can provide a sense of belonging and community for individuals who may feel isolated and alone in their struggles. This can be especially important for those who may not have a strong support system outside of their religious community.

  2. Validating and understanding others' experiences: It can be helpful to hear from others who have had similar experiences and to know that you are not alone in your struggles. This can help to reduce feelings of isolation and increase feelings of hope and resilience.

  3. Receiving support and encouragement: A support group can provide a safe space to share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and to receive support and encouragement from others. This can be especially helpful for those who may not have a supportive network outside of the group.

  4. Finding healthy coping strategies: Support groups can provide opportunities to learn about and practice healthy coping strategies for dealing with difficult emotions and experiences.

  5. Gaining perspective and understanding: Hearing from others who have gone through similar experiences can help to provide new perspectives and understanding, and can help individuals feel less alone and more connected to others.

Overall, joining a religious trauma support group can be a powerful tool for healing and growth. You can join our thriving community of religious trauma survivors in our monthly membership of A Year of Non-Magical Thinking. We have a private and supportive space for folks to support one another and have deeper conversations about recovery.


For those with religious trauma, it can be incredibly helpful to learn some nervous system regulation techniques. When you are able to regulate, you are able to process your trauma in new and powerful ways. You can learn about nervous system regulation in Regulated: Nervous System Masterclass.
