Spiritual Terrorism - Boyd C. Purcell is a National Board Certified Counselor, a Licensed Professional Counselor, an Ordained Christian Minister, and a Board Certified Chaplain. Educationally, he has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Comprehensive Social Studies (World/European/American History, Geography, Political Science, etc.) He also has a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling, a Master of Divinity Degree in Biblical Studies, and a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in the integration of psychology and theology. In terms of experience, Dr. Purcell has over 40 years of ministry in counseling: agency, clinical, pastoral, psychiatric hospital, school, substance abuse, private practice, and chaplaincy-providing spiritual care at the end of life for hospice patients. Spiritual Terrorism is thus a unique blend of the historical, psychological, and theological perspectives in regard to major world religions. This integrative approach provides the greatest probability of understanding the complex problem of the use and misuse of religion, being liberated from fear-based religion, and finding healing for damaged emotions due to spiritual abuse/terrorism. Dr. Purcell started using the terms "spiritual abuse" and "spiritual terrorism" early in the 1990's. He presented on these topics to counselors, social workers, hospice personnel, chaplains, and other clergy at various local, state, regional, national, and international conferences. Evaluations were always overwhelmingly positive. Many participants reported that they had never heard of these terms but recognized that they had been spiritually abused. Some clergy and mental-health professionals realized that they had failed to recognize it in former patients and had, consequently, not been able to help them very much and had lacked the knowledge to have made a helpful referral. - www.healingspiritualterrorism.com
