Therapists working with sexual trauma survivors navigate a challenging terrain.
These clients often finish therapy feeling misunderstood and trapped in their suffering, leaving therapists to grapple with frustration and helplessness themselves.
This struggle is understandable, considering that sexual assault survivors experience prolonged PTSD symptoms, heightened triggers, and enduring trauma from close relationships.
Unfortunately, conventional trauma training falls short in addressing these complex challenges, which only intensifies therapists’ doubts about whether they can truly make a difference.
To bridge this gap, we’re offering an advanced training program led by sexual trauma expert Erika Shershun, LMFT. This program equips therapists with the necessary tools to provide effective guidance for sexual trauma survivors on their path to recovery.
The comprehensive workshop comprises practical exercises, client resources, interactive activities, and focused Q&A sessions.
By participating, you’ll gain:
Embark on this journey of aiding survivors, fostering empowerment and healing, while simultaneously providing therapists the support to feel more capable and attuned.
