Recovering from Religion is very excited to announce a new series of discussions we’re calling RfRx Talks. These discussions specifically have the RfR support groups in mind and will feature topics often discussed in the regular meetings. This series is by no means a replacement for the support group meetings, instead, it’s designed to complement the meetings and provide some good advice for coping and hoping from mental health professionals during this time of isolation. This week’s discussion will feature RfR Founder & President, Dr. Darrel Ray and it will be hosted by the RfR Support Group Director, Eric Wells. The topic will be The Psychology of Religion During Crisis. The first 30 - 45 minutes will be a topic discussion between guest and host, followed by a Q&A session in which you can ask the guest some of your great questions. After the Q&A we’ll open up the call to everyone and just talk and hang out for a bit. To get the most out of the discussion watch the Corona Virus Pub video by Dr Darrel Ray beforehand: https://youtu.be/Jg8JLab1cQM These sessions will be open to all Recovering from Religion support group members but will max out at 100 participants, so be sure to download the video conferencing app (Zoom) and get into the meeting early.

This transitional period is an ongoing process that can result in a range of emotions, as well as a ripple effect of consequences throughout an individual’s life. As such, the support meetings are safe and anonymous places to express these doubts, fears, and experiences without biased feedback or proselytizing. We are here to help each other through this journey. There is no cost to attend this support group but, if you feel so inclined, donations can be made at www.recoveringfromreligion.org/donate If you find you need to talk with someone before the meeting date, RfR has a hotline and online chat for that express purpose. Go to www.recoveringfromreligion.org to talk with an agent or chat online. If you are in need of professional help, we can offer the Secular Therapy Project to provide options to connect with a professional therapist. All therapists have been thoroughly vetted by our organization and offer only evidence-based and non-religious treatment. Connect with them at www.seculartherapy.org. Like what RfR does?
