Religious Trauma: the Persistence of Purity Culture
In this series of sessions, professional counsellor, Caroline Winzenried, delves deeper into various aspects of religious trauma.
In this session, she reveals how ‘purity culture’ began as a movement within the American evangelical Christian community, starting in the ’90s, and placed a strong moral emphasis on abstinence until marriage. Since then, it has spread to several countries and denominations around the world. Caroline will discuss this pervasive form of religious trauma and the impact of its teachings on intimacy, sexual identity and self-esteem.
