CLASS: Shining Through Survival
Shining Through Survival: Sex for Survivors
with Clair Paul
Saturday, April 21, 10 am
THIS IS A MORNING CLASS
In this workshop we will discuss the intimate intricacies of being sexual following an assault. Each survivor's story and experience is different, but too often sexuality becomes stigmatized and this can create shame and self-doubt. Ultimately, survivors have the capability to create their own narrative in order to continue to thrive and shine. We will discuss boundaries, coping skills, self-advocacy and how to effectively communicate with secondary survivors (loved ones who are also close to the survivors trauma).
*It is our goal to make this an all-inclusive event to all genders and sexualities because sexual violence has no socioeconomic status, age, gender, sexuality, or race.*
