Overcome shame and stigma; and bring a newly felt sense of safety, awareness, and life to your body. If you've experienced
rape, sexual abuse, molestation, or sexual trauma, you may feel as if you've lost your sense of self. You may have difficulty
setting boundaries or building satisfying sexual relationships. Sometimes, you may even feel like your body isn't your own.
You aren't alone. The scars of sexual trauma exist not only in the mind, but also in the body. And in order to heal, build
resilience, and discover a sense of hope, you must address both. Drawing on the powerful mind-body techniques of somatic therapy,
The Healing Sexual Trauma Workbook is a step-by-step guide to overcoming the psychological effects of sexual trauma, and increasing
positive body awareness and vitality. You'll find tools to help you create an internal sense of safety and become more embodied
and present. You'll also discover ways to establish boundaries; move beyond intense feelings like shame, fear, and guilt;
and deal effectively with triggers. Finally, you'll learn how to cultivate self-compassion and the confidence needed to live
your best life. What happened to you isn't your fault, and it doesn't define you. With the right tools, you can live a full
and satisfying life beyond sexual trauma. This workbook will help guide you, every step of the way.
