Meike HansenPartnership in sexually traumatized women

An early traumatization - the trauma of identity and the trauma of love - is often followed by the traumatization of sexuality. In accompanying people in their trauma biography, we often encounter the trauma triad: not wanted, not loved, not protected. The foundation for the development of a dependent relationship pattern is laid. In early attachment trauma, sexual trauma is exacerbated. In working with clients, I have often seen that if they are sexually traumatized, they also tend to seek out specific partners, where an obvious re-enacting in the relationship, which was experienced in the initial sexual trauma, takes place. When such a relationship comes to an end and no trauma processing has taken place, the next partnership is often similar, despite the negative experiences of the previous relationship. So many women stumble from one difficult relationship to the next. The key to living a healthier relationship is working on one's own feeling of victimization. When one's own victimization has become clear and tangible, the resulting victim identity can be resolved and there is less blindness to potential perpetrators. At the beginning of my workshop, I would like to go into the co-dependent relationship pattern a little bit further and afterward I want to give the opportunity to work with the Intention Method.
