This new training will review the research and current models of the evolution of sexual trauma. We will explore the differences between men and women in their response to childhood trauma and the evolutionary psychological foundations for these differences. Importantly, this training will introduce some specific interventions for practitioners to help people afflicted with the adult manifestations of childhood trauma. Many of these will be based on recently published research by Dr. Mike Abrams.
During this class we will look at the use of objective measures in assessing sexual problems. Clinicians will receive assistance in determining the point at which a sexual style becomes a dysfunction. Case studies will be presented to clarify some of the techniques that are discussed in this training.
