We know what is wrong with purity culture—now we need to know how to heal. As a licensed psychologist specializing in sexuality who grew up in the height of purity culture, I offer a path forward to help Christians repair the movement’s harmful effects, overcome shame, and reconstruct healthier faith and sexuality.
In my book, I plan to describe the five most pervasive myths of purity culture and how the damaging messages of purity culture make false promises and induce shame. I will provide a guidebook for healing from purity culture, drawn from techniques I use as a psychologist and coach.
