Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to examine and compare the effects of two body therapy approaches in women who have experienced child sexual abuse.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Child Abuse, Sexual Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Dissociation Behavioral: Body-Oriented Therapy Behavioral: Standardized Massage Therapy Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Women who have experienced child sexual abuse often display symptoms of dissociation and lack of bodily self-awareness which hinder the recovery process. Mind-body researchers have examined alternative therapeutic approaches to eliminating these factors. This study will compare a standardized therapeutic message to body-oriented therapy which involves a combination of hands-on bodywork and verbal therapy focused on somatic and emotional awareness.
