You Have Afflicted Me
Experiences with Trauma and Spirituality
After breaking off her studies and her training as a nurse, Katharina’s life became focused on her faith: She joined a Christian women’s community and studied theology. However, the Lutheran pastor once again found herself in a clinic in 2000: In the course of trauma therapy, she experienced peace and expansiveness behind all of her brokenness. Are traumatic experiences somehow related to “faith”? Based on her own experiences, Katharina Schridde addresses this question to herself, other affected people and therapists, as well as the poets and sages of Israel and the Bible. She approaches an answer to the question about God in a world of horrors.
