This presentation will provide an introduction to the topic of anger towards God, a common form of spiritual struggle. The presenter will provide an overview of the topic, including the “taboo” nature of anger towards God, predictors and consequences of anger towards God, and strategies for coping with this type of anger.
Psychologists, Community Counselors, School Counselors, Civic Workers, Clinicians, Pastoral Care, and Chaplains.
Anger towards God is a common but little-studied problem. Many people see it as taboo and are reluctant to talk about it. This presentation will give a research-based, clinically relevant introduction to this important but neglected topic.
This workshop is designed to help mental health professionals:
- Identify factors that predict anger towards God
- Recognize why anger towards God is often a taboo topic
- Generate potential strategies to help people cope with anger towards God
