Sexual violence against women

It has been more than a year since the #metoo campaign began, but the problem of sexual violence against women has been with us for as long as human time. Today, more than 30% of women on this planet experience sexual violence in their lifetime. These numbers are not exact because many women do not report the event or live in places where they can not report it. And many do not seek help either because they are afraid or do not have the resources to do so. And 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. 

Learn to recover with MAP Training

The MAP Training program described on this site was designed to help women overcome the trauma of sexual violence and our studies indicate that it does help. We published a study in 2018 with more than 100 women, many of whom had sexual violence history. Just 6 weeks of MAP Training helped them think less about their trauma and ruminate less about the past. Afterwards,they said they felt closer to their ideal self. Importantly, combining meditation and aerobic exercise was better than meditation alone or exercise alone.

If you have experienced sexual violence or know someone that has, please tell them about MAP Training and send them to
