Redeeming Power

Power has a God-given role in human relationships and institutions, but far too often, power is abused and lives are decimated.  Psychologist Diane Langberg helps us learn to protect the vulnerable and create safe spaces for them to thrive. Diane explains the clinical and theological framework for power, and illustrates how to bless and not curse those under our care!
