This is a course for individuals experiencing a LDS faith-based transition, including questioning or having a crisis of faith, as well as for loved one's who care about people going through a change of faith, membership, or change in religious belief.
We wanted to honor both sides and acknowledge families, individuals, and loved ones need support and guidance as they navigate this complex developmental experience. We were very purposeful in creating content that was both appropriate and respectful of the individual going through a faith transition as well as their believing family and friends. We want this content to speak to both sides of this experience and facilitate growth.
We want to support people in spiritually thriving with no agenda of how that will look. We know the use of research and psychologically based tools and skills from this course can protect relationships and support mental health through a faith transition.
