A Mind-Body Approach to Healing Sexual Trauma

Healing Sex is the encouraging, sex-positive guide for all women survivors of sexual assault — heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, coupled, and single — who want to delight in their own sexuality. While most books on the topic broach sexuality to reassure women that it is all right to say "no" to unwanted sex, Healing Sex encourages women to learn how to say "yes" — to their own desires and on their own terms.

This mind-body approach to healing from sexual trauma was created by Staci Haines, who has been educating in the area of sexual abuse, sex education, and somatic healing for over 15 years.
