AMY NORDHUES, an author and sexual abuse survivor from Bartlesville, Oklahoma, joined us to discuss her story, including her latest release, "Prayed Upon: Breaking Free From Therapist Abuse".
FROM HER WEBSITE:
"Amy Nordhues is a survivor of both childhood sexual abuse and sexual abuse as an adult at the hands of a mental health professional. She is a passionate Christ-follower and expert on the healing God provides. She has a BA in psychology with minors in sociology and criminology. Her devotions have been published in The Secret Place (Judson Press) and include: A Big Softy, Winter 2018, Fixer Upper, Summer 2019, No, Thank You, Summer 2021 and Unveiled, Fall 2021. Her essay, Give Me a Sign, won 2nd place at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference Foundation Awards. She blogs at www.amynordhues.com. A married mother of three, she enjoys spending time with family, writing, reading, photography, and all things comedy.
She hopes that through her ministry, she can shed a light on the very under-reported issue of therapist/clergy abuse both to offer support to the victim and to aide loved ones so they can better assist the victim with the very arduous process of healing. She also hopes to work towards improving the laws in her state which currently has no legislation regarding therapist abuse. In over half of the states in our country, it is illegal for a therapist to engage in sex with a client. The power differential that exists in any therapeutic relationship makes it impossible for a client to give consent. For this reason, the patient entering therapy must be protected."
