Tokyo, Japan: Healing Sexual Abuse and Assault--The Full Embodiment Model


All of us work with clients who have experienced sexual trauma as a child, sexual assault as adults, with couples who grapple with sexual incompatibilities, or people who struggle with sexual identity, body image and just generally resist being in their bodies.

This workshop is designed to tackle just these issues, and aimed at helping practitioners acquire a variety of new and effective tools to best serve these clients—even the toughest ones. Introducing material not covered in the SE training.
