Women in today’s society are all experiencing mass trauma. With the regressive laws around the governmental management of women’s reproductive rights, the post covid worldwide pandemic and the global wars seen with daily internet access, the experience of trauma is real. In addition, according the Centers for Disease Control, one in four women have experienced some kind of sexual trauma. One in five report being raped and/or being sexual abused as children. Healing from this level of trauma means understanding the female experience and relationality on a deep level.

Therapists can learn to support, treat and create safe environments for these women, as well as work on their own experience of vicarious trauma in sessions. This recording will address ways to heal, move forward and find hope in the field of psychotherapy and it’s advances in this area.



This online program is worth 1.25 hours CPD.
