Your clients are coming to you to rebuild trust in their own bodies, minds, and hearts. It’s a big responsibility, and the rewards are tremendous: you have the opportunity to help someone get a core part of their life back and turn it from pain back to pleasure.

Sexuality coach and sacred intimate Alex S. Morgan will share tools they’ve used to help trauma survivors come home to themselves. We’ll cover how trauma impacts your client’s body, mind, and experience, including the “meta” piece: incorporating trauma-informed practices into the structure of sessions and client relationships. Since so much reclaiming work takes place in the body, we’ll examine best practices for bodyworkers and other body-based practitioners.

We’ll also discuss how you can teach your clients to use boundaries to increase, not decrease their autonomy and personal power, plus share solo (optionally partnered) somatic exercises we’ll practice during the session that you can share with your clients.

This session is geared toward professionals serving all genders and orientations and is supportive of kink, monogamy and non-monogamy, asexuality, demisexuality, and all forms of consensual intimacy between adults: romantic, aromantic, casual, and commercial. We’ll explicitly address how to validate asexual, demisexual, and/or aromantic clients in rebuilding their desired relationship to sexuality and intimacy after trauma, sexual healing for sex worker survivors, the layers chronic pain adds to sexual embodiment, and the ways that trauma intersects with transgender and non-binary experiences of body disconnection.
