A Restored Life is Within Reach for Survivors of Sexual Trauma
The statistics are startling. Every 2 minutes in the United States, a person is a victim of a sexual assault. Over the last twenty years, 4.2 million Americans have been sexually traumatized. This is a seismic event that crosses racial, gender, and socioeconomic lines to impact every facet of a person’s being. It is at the heart of many presenting issues that clinicians encounter in their practices, including relationship challenges, substance abuse disorders, and chronic health problems. Current clinical approaches often miss the mark, overlooking the most essential and complicating factors of treatment.
This contributes to clients regressing and identifying even more strongly with their trauma.
Now there is hope for these survivors and those who love them. Melissa Bradley-Ball, an esteemed trainer and speaker on issues of trauma and resiliency, guides you through a resilience-based, multi-modal approach that emphasizes the possibility of post-traumatic growth. Help your clients identify and avoid the activation rituals in their lives. Involve the larger family as important team members in the healing process. Use proven somatic grounding, energy psychology, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to help clients in their heroic journey toward restoration.
