Writings

  • ‘Hazards and hope’ by Wendy C. Morris reports on how the Technique helped – and didn’t help – in recovering from childhood sexual abuse.[1]
  • ‘We are sexless, not!’ by Nicola Hanefeld; on the subject of sex being consciously or unconsciously part of lessons, and of her own experience of being abused by a stranger as a 15 year old.[2]
  • ‘Surviving’ by Sue Isaac; on the difficulties of being touched during lessons and training as a teacher, and concluding that the Technique has something special to offer to survivors of childhood sexual abuse.[3]
