Join us for a free online event where we will hear from Darby Strickland, a faculty member and counselor at CCEF, author, and speaker on how to care well for survivors of trauma and abuse.
Darby has served at CCEF since 2003 and works with individuals, families and couples facing a variety of issues. She has a master of divinity with a counseling emphasis from Westminster Theological Seminary. Darby has a passion and expertise for helping the vulnerable and oppressed, especially women in abusive marriages.
She has written two booklets: Domestic Abuse: Recognize, Respond, and Rescue and Domestic Abuse: Help for the Sufferer. Working with a team she helped develop the curriculum, Becoming a Church that Cares Well for the Abused, a free web-based training that provides best practices for pastors, ministries, and leaders who minister in the context of abuse. Her speaking and writing focuses on training churches and counselors to care well for those who have been victims of trauma and abuse. She has counseled in a missionary church setting and has also held leadership roles in women’s ministry. She is the author of Is it Abuse? (P&R, 2020) and has contributed to several other books.
