Healing Sexual Trauma with Staci Haines
This video training in Healing Sexual Abuse was not created just for survivors of sexual abuse. Psychotherapists, sex coaches, tantra teachers, and somatic practitioners of all sorts and their clients will benefit from Staci Haines’ body-based practices for healing.
One in three girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before age eighteen. Although many sexually abused boys and girls do not live as victims, they can appear healthy and still carry wounds from the abuse. In this Healing Sexual Trauma class, Staci Haines offers a series of somatic practices that over time can change how we experience past sexual trauma. Some of the healing practices are solo. Some involve work with one’s partner. Some of the practices are done with guidance and touch from a trauma professional. All of the practices involve awareness of the body, especially awareness of our breathing.
Before watching the film, we recommend reading this series of short articles by Staci Haines.
