June 26 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Apply here!

Facilitated by Don Webers

This full day-workshop will overview a number of topics related to our evolving psychological and social understanding of trauma and addiction.  Many people seeking spiritual direction come wounded by a past that makes difficult their present. Becoming trauma-informed helps spiritual directors listen more compassionately and effectively, while also teaching them the limits of their art.

Interactive presentations will cover the neuroscience of addiction and trauma; understanding addictive behaviors, processes of change, stress/trauma related responses, window of tolerance; grounding strategies; motivational interviewing and a review of current strategies of treatment relevant to the work of spiritual direction.


  • Delicious, wholesome lunch created by renowned Loyola House kitchen
  • Dynamic presentations and group work
  • Open to all spiritual directors
