Common Awards Webinar: Trauma, Theology and Pastoral Care

Tickets are available here

About this event

A conversation with Dr Delroy Hall and Dr Katie Cross.

Dr Hall is a counsellor with over 30 years’ experience in a range of settings including churches, the NHS and universities. His PhD focussed on black pastoral care in Britain and his recent book A Redemption Song (SCM press, 2021) addresses the themes of racial trauma, pastoral care and theology.

Dr Katie Cross is Lecturer in Theology at the University of Aberdeen where one of her major research and teaching areas is feminist trauma theology. She has co-edited two books in this area including Bearing Witness: Intersectional Perspectives on Trauma Theology (SCM Press, 2022) and Feminist Trauma Theologies: Body, Scripture and Church in Critical Perspective (SCM Press, 2020).

Dr Selina Stone is a member of the Common Awards team at Durham University, and is the Postdoctoral Research Associate in Theological Education.

The webinars are aimed at Common Awards students and staff but open to others with an interest in the subject areas addressed. Each webinar will include leading scholars and/or faith practitioners who will offer diverse insights into a range of topics that will directly relate to the core modules taken by Common Awards students.
