Mui emocionado! So excited! I’m happy to announce that HarperMexico is publishing my book, The Sexual Healing Journey, in a multiple-country Spanish language edition in April-May 2021. (Mexico, US, & Spain). I have received many requests for a Spanish edition over the years. I believe the #MeToo and #YoTambien movements have increased awareness of the tremendous need for quality sexual recovery resources in Spanish. I thank Evelyn Salinas, for writing a wonderful forward to the book, and Natasha Prosperi for her support and encouragement from the beginning. I look forward to sharing more information about El Viaje para Sanar la Sexualidad: Una Guía para Sobrevivientes de Abuso with you as soon as it is available. Here is an illustration of what the cover will look like…..and the whole jacket.
Writer Hannah Harris Green explores old and new sexual healing techniques in her article, “These Women Help Others Heal From Trauma and Enjoy Sex” (The Body: The HIV/AIDS Resource, Oct. 1, 2019). The article interviews Wendy Maltz and describes several basic Relearning Touch techniques from The Sexual Healing Journey. It also features a Netherlands-based engineer’s self-discovery kit for survivors and a clothing designer’s dental dam underwear. Though the tools come from divergent therapeutic and engineering fields, they share a common goal of helping survivors learn to feel more relaxed, present, and in control during intimate relating.

While the #MeToo movement is awesome and bringing much-needed attention to the ubiquitous problem of sexual abuse in our culture, it is also triggering some painful memories for many survivors. If that is the case for you or someone you know Wendy Maltz, author of The Sexual Healing Journey has helped write an informative article for Bottomline Health that gives lots of suggestions for ways to deal with upsetting feelings and and heal from what happened in the past. The article, “When #MeToo Brings Up Painful Memories of Sexual Abuse, Here’s Help” covers questions survivors have such as: whether and how much to disclose about past sex abuse, who to share with, what to do if the past offender is still in your life, when to seek therapy, and more.
