MK Safety Net is sponsoring a conference April 20-22, 2012 for former MKs and their families. The conference will be held at Holiday Inn Rolling Meadows Schaumburg in Rolling Meadows, (Chicago), Illinois.
They have some exciting guest speakers on their agenda, including William Paul Young, who is an adult MK and the author of The Shack, Boz Tchividjian of G.R.A.C.E., and Andrew Schmutzer, an adult MK and professor at Moody Bible Institute. As the MK Safety Net web site states, all keynote speakers and breakout sessions will address abuse and trauma experienced by former MKs with a view to breaking the silence of abuse and offering resources to move toward healing.
They will discuss topics such as therapies that are available for trauma treatment, the impact of abuse on family systems, how to report abuse, and how to recover spirituality after abuse. Whether you are an MK who has suffered abuse, or the friend or family of such an MK, it sounds like there will be something at this conference just for you. I know that for myself the support group in this area is largely online. What a wonderful opportunity to meet in person, and have an actual ‘real life’ conversation.
