How to Heal Sexual (and Other Childhood) Trauma and its Impact on the Nervous System


Carolin Hauser, Author / Founder of Shine Fearlessly


One in three, that's what the statistics say.  One in three women and one in four men experienced sexual abuse in their early years.  This experience often leaves victims with a lifelong battle against fear, depression, addiction, low self-esteem, and a myriad of other symptoms.  This presentation is intended for anyone working with victims of child abuse and sexual trauma.  Author and German-trained Naturopathic doctor and facilitator, Carolyn Hauser, will present a new perspective on trauma healing based on the research and work of renowned German psychotherapist and psychoanalyst, Burt Hellinger, called Family Constellations.  Ms. Hauser's perspective comes from over 15 years working in this field in her capacity as a Family Constellations facilitator, as well as from her own journey of healing severe eating disorders and childhood sexual abuse.  The impact trauma has on the nervous system will be addressed along with practical tips on how victims can heal their past and move forward into their own power, no longer being dictated by the symptoms and triggers that come with having gone through early trauma.


At the conclusion of the talk, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the impact trauma has on the nervous system.
  • Explain the Family Constellation model of healing trauma.
  • State specific tools for helping victims (and themselves) shift into a more resourceful and empowered state.


Carolin Hauser, is the author of the book "Blossom -- Your Seven Step Journey to Healing Childhood Sexual Abuse and Creating Your Dream Life!"   An internationally recognized speaker and teacher on the subject of spirituality, emotional healing, and women's empowerment, Ms. Hauser established in 2008 and The Blossom Journey tele-course in 2010 -- a unique virtual business model which combines emotional healing, spiritual truth, and authentic business building.  Her work is based on the intersection of where the human body and experience meets past -- and even ancestral -- trauma and shows how each individual's authentic and true self is the source of one's own good -- a place of unlimited abundance, creativity, courage, and joyful existence.
