"Power is inherent in being human"; "God gave human beings power in order that they might bear God’s character in the world." Dr Diane Langberg

"Power is inherent in being human" and "God gave human beings power in order that they might bear God’s character in the world." Dr Diane Langberg

In recent days, there has been a growing number of stories of misuse of power in the church by leaders. The church needs a better understanding of what power is and how we all can avoid misusing it. This is what Dr Langberg will be helping us with in this conversation.

Diane Langberg, Ph.D. is globally recognised for her 47 years of clinical work with trauma victims. She has trained caregivers and church leaders on six continents on how to recognise and respond to trauma and the abuse of power in a healing way. Her most recent book is 'Redeeming Power: Understanding Authority and Abuse in the Church'.
