Healing from Sexual Trauma

Our course examines sexual violence on a personal and societal scale, in which identity may be damaged or altered through harassment or violence. We teach how stress and anxiety manifest in the body and mind post-trauma, as well as discuss the ways society facilitates sexual violence through victim-blaming narratives, rape culture, and shame. We offer different trauma-informed recovery tools, including modern somatic-care, and have greater discussions of body image and sexual desire after assault.

“I have found the courses really helpful, they have given me an insight into some of the things which I have struggled with and they have provided me with a different perspective. The videos are really easy to understand and having the team there to chat to if anything was unclear has been really helpful.”
