About this Event

The Breathe Networks online course, "Healing Sexual Trauma: A Professional Training in Trauma-Informed Care," will offer you a unique combination of education and training co-facilitated by over a dozen of professionals working in the realms of sexual trauma, anti-sexual violence advocacy, holistic healing and resilience building.

This comprehensive course is intended to encompass a wide breadth of information that we believe is vital when it comes to being a resource of safety, support and referrals for sexual trauma survivors. It is geared towards healing arts and health and wellness providers of all disciplines including, among others: acupuncturists, bodyworkers, yoga teachers, therapists, personal trainers, social workers, nurse practitioners, medical doctors and more.

The course will run for 8-weeks beginning on September 16th, and includes: weekly emails with an array of video interviews, totaling nearly 20 hours, along with supplemental reading content and multiple live group discussion calls.

Participants will have extended access to all course content. This allows you to move through the course at a pace that feels right to you. There is no rush and you are invited to take your time absorbing and reviewing the materials.

As a bonus to the course, we will offer a moderated, private Facebook group to deepen the conversations and to build community around the learning we are undertaking together.
