Empowerment Self Defense Alliance at NSAC 17
Exhausted, inspired, and deeply grateful after presenting Healing from Sexual Trauma: A Movement-Based, Empowerment Self-Defense Approach with my colleague Brenda Jones from the Center for Anti-Violence Education at the National Sexual Assault Conference in Dallas, TX. So honored to be among the Empowerment Self-Defense Alliance influencing the national dialogue about prevention of sexual violence.
Keep reading for a list of resources I used in that presentation.

A working definition of Empowerment Self-Defense appears in this post.
My handout about practice behaviors that support survivors in community classes is located here.
