Recently we have heard horrifying stories in the news from women talking about sexual violence and harrassment. More than 30% of women worldwide experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. These numbers are not exact because many women do not report the event, and many do not seek help.
These experiences change the way women (and men) think about the past and the future. Although these changes may seem minor, they are not. They change everything. So as much as we need to focus on prevention and justice for the victims, we must ALSO find new and effective ways to help women recover from sexual violence and trauma.

Sadly, sexual violence and assault will not go away soon. But the memories of those experiences can become quieter and at times, they may even disappear. We just published a new study with more than 100 women, many of whom had sexual violence history. Just 6 weeks of MAP Training twice a week helped them think less about their trauma and the past. And they said they felt closer to their ideal self. The combination of meditation and aerobic exercise was better than meditation alone or exercise alone past. Simply put the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, at least when it comes to MAP Training your Brain.
If you have experienced sexual violence or know someone that has, please tell them about MAP Training and send them to MAPTRAINMYBRAIN.com
