SEX: Dr. Thema - Healing After Sexual Trauma
By Sony Music Entertainment
Today we're going to be talking about healing from sexual trauma, with the incredibly wise Dr. Thema Bryant. We know that the rates of women and non binary people who've experienced sexual violence are terrifyingly high and post MeToo movement, we have an increased awareness of the problem, but today we’re focusing on finding joy, finding safety in community, and finding yourself after trauma.
Although we will be talking about the subject generally, we won't be going into details of specific incidents or types of assault. And with that said, if the subject is too raw, then please do have a listen to one of the other episodes of Exactly.
Dr. Thema is incredible. She is a minister, a psychologist, a professor, a sacred artist and host of the podcast Homecoming. Her latest book: Homecoming- Overcome Fear and Trauma to Retain Your Whole Authentic Self publishes this March and we can’t wait to read it.
Before you listen today we want to take a minute to say that if you’ve experienced trauma, whatever happened to you was not your fault. We hope this episode is as comforting as it is informative. Be kind to yourselves.
