Healing Sex: A Mind-Body Approach to Healing Sexual Trauma
Cleis Press Start, 28. nóv. 2007 - 320 síđur
The first encouraging, sex-positive guide for all women survivors of sexual assault -- heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, coupled, and single -- who want to reclaim their sex lives. While most books on the topic broach sexuality only to reassure women that it is all right to say "no" to unwanted sex, Healing Sex encourages women to learn how to say "yes" -- to their own desires and on their own terms. This mind-body approach to healing from sexual trauma was created by Staci Haines, who has been educating in the area of sexual abuse, sex education, and somatic healing for over 15 years. Her techniques are ideal for anyone looking for a new way to heal from trauma, beyond traditional talk therapy.

The process was painful. I was coming back to me. I started to identify my body not only as a shell that housed my “self” but as a source ofwisdom and inspiration. My body actually knew things about the healing process that I didn't.
