109: Therapy After Purity Culture

Partner for $3

Therapy after Purity Culture – have you been on the fence about it? After Purity Culture’s damage, many of us don’t know how to take the next steps. Maybe a therapist can help. We know that purity culture can be experienced as a trauma, and therapist Jamie Williams is here to talk to us about:

  • the impact of rigid thinking on our minds
  • what happens when our bodies feel unsafe in religious spaces
  • how to spot dysfunctional relationship patterns
  • trauma re-enactments in dating
  • EMDR and future templating

On Instagram and Twitter this week, we’ll be sharing tips as well.

Join us as a partner to hear this week’s conversation between Jess & Devi about some feel-good views and the heresies evangelicals in the US believe. For $3/month (USD) you’ll get three exclusive episodes a month, and a ticket to the Green Room at the end of the month.
