Episode 97: Raising Healthy Sexual Beings after Trauma and Abuse

Amy Hammer joins Natasha on this episode of Mormon Sex Info as they discuss instances when young children and pre-adolescents are involved in sexual play/exploration with one another. Amy is a CST and Licensed Clinical Social Worker and works in Kansas.

Amy and Natasha discuss how to help children become healthy sexual beings especially in environments where there might be assault or abuse whether by other siblings or others in the home. Topics include why they don’t like the term predators for a younger population, what can be done to help them when they are adults to be healthy sexual beings, when to get help, how to get help, and various resources to help.

They recommend the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers for those who are looking for help:
