What is it about?

This paper examines two prominent approaches to trauma-informed theology that seek to make theology more understandable from the perspective of trauma. The paper also proposes a theological understanding of trauma that maintains God as the object of theology understanding God's relationship to all things as the task of theology. In maintaining this perspective, it is argued that theology can actually be therapeutic for individuals who have experienced trauma.
