Creating Trauma-Sensitive Meditation Classes

“Meditation and mindfulness practices can have tremendous benefits for trauma healing, including for sexual abuse survivors. However, for mind-body modalities, and particularly meditation, to benefit trauma survivors, they need to be taught and practiced in a way that takes the potential impact of trauma into account.” ~Lisa Erickson

In this teleseminar, Creating Trauma-Sensitive Meditation Classes, Lisa Erickson provides an overview of trauma reactions, with a focus on the impact of sexual abuse and trauma, shares research on meditation and mindfulness, and how it can best benefit survivors. Lisa suggests tips for creating a trauma-sensitive meditation environment, gives examples of choice-based language and offers meditation options best suited to survivors of sexual violence. This teleseminar is appropriate and accessible for anyone who currently teaches meditation, is involved in mind/body modalities, or practices meditation and is interested in learning about its benefits for trauma survivors of all types.
