Understanding and Responding to the Abuse of Power in Leadership

Date recorded: 17 May 2021 | Speaker: Diane Langberg | Event: ELF Plenary Session


In the past few years, Evangelical churches and organisations have been rocked by revelations of abuse committed by leaders in positions of power. Why has this happened? What are some of the biggest mistakes that churches and organisations make when responding to accusations of abuse? How can we be better at listening and caring for the victims in our midst? How can leaders wisely use their leadership power? In this session, Diane Langberg, clinical psychologist and author of Redeeming Power: Understanding Authority and Abuse in the Church, is interviewed by Peter Saunders, CEO of International Christian Medical Dental Association, on the issue of leadership and the abuse of power.
