Description: 

Holistic healing is a broad term that encompasses many non-traditional therapeutic practices, such as equine therapy, movement and yoga, horticultural therapy, and Somatic Experiencing. For too long, these methods have been a well-kept secret. Now, more and more of us in the anti-violence field are recognizing the benefits of using alternative healing modalities with sexual violence survivors. This 90-minute webinar will introduce OVW Rural Grantees to non-traditional support group and counseling services through the practice experience of three experts from the field. Shamecca Bryant, Emily Tofte, and Corinne Sanchez will discuss their philosophy on using holistic healing methods with survivors of sexual violence. Participants will learn ways to integrate these practices into their rural dual/multi-service agencies with support from board, staff and community members

In an ideal world, every client would have access to ANY medical/ mental health service. Unfortunately, many services are sex-segregated, which creates barriers for clients (and providers) who are seeking the care and services they deserve. This webinar will examine how to creatively advocate for and with your clients.
