3: Neurobiology of sexual trauma: Resilience, recovery, and Empowerment Self-Defense

on .

The third of three PowerPoints translating my research on the intersection of Empowerment Self-Defense (ESD), the neurobiology of stress and resilience, and social work.

This slide-show describes how and why ESD is beneficial to survivors of sexual violence, and suggests avenues for future inquiry. Of particular interest to ESD instructors, survivors, and those who serve survivors is emerging evidence about the efficacy of mind-body interventions to treat post-traumatic stress.
