In this episode, Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Tim Birt shares with us his perspective on three questions:
Part 1) In what ways are LDS policies and teachings on sexuality harmful and helpful?
Part 2) In what ways are the LDS church’s current policies related to child protection and abuse inadequate or harmful or need improvement?
Part 3) What can LDS church members do to help protect children in their local congregations?
