Sexual Trauma: Effectively Guide Survivors to Release the Past, Restore Resilience and Heal from Sexual Abuse is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Oct 26, 2018 at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Milwaukee - Brookfield, Brookfield, Wisconsin, United States of America. Course Description: Acts of sexual violence erode a victim’s safety, dignity, and self-identity. The survivor of sexual abuse often remains silent and full of shame, guilt and self-hatred. Marred by the tragedies of the abuse, the victim often suffers from depression, suicidal thoughts, post-traumatic stress disorder, addictions, and chronic health conditions. To cope, survivors cut, numb out with substances, recycle the abuse through violent relationships, or strike out at others. The sexual abuse leaves your client feelings of unworthy and you may be at a loss on how to properly treat them. By only focusing on the symptoms, you may miss what the root of the problem could be – undisclosed sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, difficulties with sexual intimacy or other sexual traumas. This seminar will provide you with specific knowledge and resources to enhance your capacity to effectively work with survivors of sexual abuse. You will also learn about important similarities as well as differences in the impact and clinical outcomes for men versus women. Through informed and uplifting didactic exercises, case examples and lectures, you will know how to facilitate healthy measures towards recovery and assist in managing sensitive trauma- and drug-linked triggers associated with sexual intimacy. You will be provided with the tools and knowledge to facilitate healing for clients traumatized by sexual abuse. Course Objectives: • Analyze the magnitude, circumstances, risk factors, signs and indicators of child sexual abuse histories for your clients to better inform treatment interventions. • Determine the potential neurobiological impact of trauma and identify clinical strategies to improve therapeutic outcomes. • Evaluate the long-term physical, psychological, and emotional impact of sexual trauma on your client’s level of functioning. • Explore the role of childhood sexual abuse and subsequent challenges with sexual intimacy and interpersonal relationships and its influence on clinical treatment. • Differentiate the impact of sexual trauma on men and women and the related clinical implications. • Utilize effective clinical guidelines for the therapeutic relationship, safety and containment with clients who have survived trauma.
