Trauma-informed practices to care for ourselves during the coronavirus pandemic. 

For survivors of sexual violence & abuse, the coronavirus can bring feelings and responses associated with your trauma back to the surface. There is no right way to feel right now. There is no wrong way to feel right now. This booklet will explore some of these feelings & responses, whilst providing you with some corresponding self-care suggestions… “as we move through these challenging times, I invite us to be gentler with ourselves & others. I invite us to find ways towards a clam within the chaos. I hope in this mandatory season of stillness, we come home to the truth that we are enough. We have nothing to prove. Any moment in which we catch a glimpse of this truth is freedom.”
