Humanity has made outstanding progress in the field of mental health. However, acute, chronic, and complex types of trauma seem to be on the rise. The management of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is still challenging. Could it be that any solution that does not consider God is lacking? Or, more positively, can biblical teachings enrich and improve the current therapeutic approaches?
Egbert Brink, a pastor, and university professor from the Netherlands, is convinced that pastors and professionals can learn valuable lessons from the book of Job to boost the trauma-healing process. The particularly challenging and traumatic events that Job faced in his life and the way he coped with them are rich and inspiring. His response can also help with prevention strategies.
