Wendy Maltz LCSW, DST was the featured guest Wednesday, April 14th, 2010 on the HealthyPlace TV Show, the online mental health TV show that airs over the HealthyPlace.com website. The program focused on how experiences such as incest, rape and molestation can harm a person’s sexuality. Wendy describes common sexual repercussions of sexual abuse such as avoiding or being afraid of sex, having trouble being emotionally present in sex, engaging in compulsive or inappropriate sex, experiencing negative reactions to touch, having unwanted sexual fantasies, and being troubled with sexual functioning difficulties. Wendy also talks about sexual healing as a dynamic process survivors can employ to reclaim a positive sense of what sex is and develop new skills for experiencing touch and sex in positive, life-affirming ways.
