From Trauma to Triumph: Learning How to Celebrate Sexuality after Adverse Experiences
- Presentation speakers
Trauma influences both physical and emotional difficulties that can impact sexuality in a variety of ways. Neuroscience now provides easy to understand information about how to stop harm, heal pain, and change lives through optimal sexual decision making.
This presentation will address how anyone who has experienced any type of trauma can best understand the impact it has on their brain, mind, and body in order to enhance their health and well-being. Resilience and self-regulation offer solutions for managing pain without causing harm to self or others.
Core components of trauma-informed sexual health initiatives provide a foundation for integrating vital services into an array of professional settings that include schools, community and reproductive health centers, mental health services, criminal justice, child welfare, and coalitions addressing sexual and domestic violence.
