One reason people with Childhood PTSD (or Complex PTSD) so often have a hard time in relationships is “DWD” — Dating While Dysregulated. In this video I talk casual sex and how it can SEEM like it’s going to help us get re-regulated, but in the long term, it doesn’t always go that way.
I’ll also tell you a little about an approach that worked for me and many others, called Structured Dating. It’s the cornerstone of what I teach in my upcoming video-based course, Dating and Relationships for People with Childhood PTSD.

If you haven’t taken my first course, Healing Childhood PTSD, this would be a great time, because it’s all about the science and the strategies for recognizing how Childhood PTSD has affected you, and building a plan to get free and change your life (it’s good preparation for the dating course too).
