Creating Trauma-Sensitive Meditation Classes Teleseminar

Published: July 11, 2014

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.
