In this episode we speak with Jamila Dawson, LMFT and August McLaughlin, authors of the new book With Pleasure: Managing Trauma Triggers for More Vibrant Sex and Relationships.
We cover the basics of what trauma is, the lifelong impact of trauma, how trauma disrupts our safety and social belonging, what triggers are (and are not!) and how we can all develop strategies to manage our triggers and trauma so we can live well, enjoy a vibrant sex life and deepen in all of our relationships.
