Understanding Spiritual Abuse with Dr. John Townsend

Uncharted with Ines Franklin

As you know we love to tell stories of people along their journeys of faith. Many times enjoy sharing high moments that we like to talk about and remember. But, we also go through difficult and challenging moments that we don’t tend to talk about but we could learn so much from if we can find a safe space to share those experiences.  Sometimes, we make those spaces to hear from you, the listener and sometimes we need an expert to speak into what makes those moments difficult to overcome or how to identify ways to navigate through the hardship. Today is a day for an expert. I am joined by Dr. John Townsend to talk about Spiritual Abuse. I’ve seen in many people’s stories how Spiritual Abuse has played a critical role. In some cases, it’s a divergent path but we find our back and again and for others, it completely devastates their faith. Dr. Townsend spends some time defining abuse, how to spot it, and how also offers advice for leaders and how we can work to avoid the hidden trap doors that may put you in a situation where you may be hurting others. Dr. Townsend is a business consultant, leadership coach, and psychologist. He has a Masters in Theology from Dallas Seminary and has written over 30 books, selling more than 10 million copies worldwide.  Join him on Facebook at Dr. Townsend LIVE for great Q&A.

[BONUS] Quarantine Queens Eps 3: Dr. John Townsend on Structure, Connection, & Boundaries in a Pandemic

For The Love With Jen Hatmaker Podcast

On the best days, people are, well, a lot. They have feelings, they have opinions, they have needs—and as “responsible adults,” we have so many people relying on us at one time that sometimes it can feel like we cannot crumble, because who on earth knows what would happen if we did? Add in a virus, some upended lifestyles, extroverts and introverts forced indoors together, and well . . . let’s just say we need some guidance on how to get through this pandemic with our sanity intact. Thankfully, one of Jen’s favorite experts is here to lend a hand (and when we say favorite, we mean she’s quoted the book he co-authored, Boundaries, in *at least* six of her books): psychologist and NYT bestselling author Dr. John Townsend! Jen and Dr. Townsend go deep into all the pressure points we’re seeing in our relationships right now: how parents can walk teens through their hard feelings, how to spouses can learn to talk through their frustrations (especially since introverts and extroverts are responding so differently right now), even how to draw boundaries in a house where you’re stuck with a bunch of other people. Dr. Townsend’s chockfull of practical tips on how to emotionally care for ourselves and our loved ones well, even during a crisis.
