Understanding and Working with Sexual Trauma

Here is the detailed info about the upcoming weekend: Understanding and Working with Sexual Trauma

Presented by: Laura Rademacher, M.A., LMFT, CST, CST-S
Dates/Times: Saturday & Sunday, 10/15 & 10/16, 9am-6:30 pm MST

DESCRIPTION: It is vital that mental health professionals know how to support their clients as they process experiences of sexual trauma and define what healing means to them. Clinical professionals specializing in sexuality need to understand the complexity and impact of sexual trauma on mental health and the sexual self. This course will discuss the prevalence of sexual trauma and how it effects people of all ages, genders, abilities, backgrounds, cultures, orientations, and ethnicities. Students will build skills in working with the emotional and physical impact of trauma, such as dissociation and dysregulation. Students will also learn how to help clients recognize and express their desires and boundaries, work with clients’ partners and relationship systems within a therapeutic setting, and how to design clinical policies and therapeutic practices that support clients’ autonomy and sense of agency. This course will examine how reclaiming pleasure can be a part of the healing process for many, and how the “self-of-the-therapist” and/or transference/counter- transference effects therapy, especially as many clinicians drawn to this work have had their own experiences of sexual trauma.
