To what extent do ministers-in-training feel equipped to serve survivors of sexual trauma? Considering sexual trauma is a sensitive and complicated topic, education is key to understanding sexual violence and the ramifications on survivors- spiritually, mentally, and physically. To understand the problem of sexual violence, we must look at the psychological theory of congruence to understand victimization. We must look at how an incarnational view of theology frames the importance of physical healing, given the significance of Christ taking on flesh and living among us. Then we can develop an educational program assisting those working with survivors of sexual violence.
