Dr. Anne Hallward of Safe Space Radio recently spoke with Wendy Maltz LCSW, DST about the impact of sexual abuse on sexuality, and ways to reclaim pleasure, safety and intimacy. In this 30 minute interview, “Sexual Healing after Sexual Abuse,” Wendy describes techniques for relearning touch that involve staying with and speaking for your inner experience. She reports that taking a vacation from sex is sometimes necessary, because when sex feels like an obligation, it can often trigger difficulties from the abuse. Wendy shares a bit of her own healing history, discusses the impact of sexual abuse on intimate partners, and describes ways that couples can take on the challenge of healing together.
