Have you ever met someone who over-spiritualizes everything? In this episode, Dr. Craig Cashwell will introduce the concept of spiritual bypass: how spiritual ideas or practices can become a crutch to cope with pain or trauma (just like pornography). Along the way, Craig will explain different examples of spiritual bypass, such as toxic positivity, compulsive goodness, and forced forgiveness. We will also talk about how emotional/spiritual health is totally different and so much better!
Dr. Craig Cashwell is Professor of Counselor Education and Clinical Mental Health Counseling at William & Mary, and a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist Supervisor. You can email him at [email protected].
