MAP Training My Brain™ is a new brain training program that helps women (and men) recover from the painful memories of sexual violence.

The #metoo movement has awakened the world to the problems of sexual violence against women, a problem that has existed under the radar for far too long. The trauma associated with sexual/physical violence impacts the lives of millions of women and men in the US and billions worldwide.

MAP Training My Brain™ is a scientifically-proven training program that combines meditation and aerobic exercise.  It only take one hour twice a week and yet it significantly decreases depression, anxiety and traumatic thoughts about the past (maptrainmybrain.com ). MAP Training also increases self-worth and perceived quality of life -- as well brain activity and cognitive control. Moreover, the combination of mental and physical training is more effective than either activity on its own. It has been featured in many news outlets like the New York Times and Washington Post -- and yet we still need funding to get it out in the world for people to use. 

Please support us as we move this program out of our lab and into your brain.

We have already trademarked the intervention and incorporated it.  But sadly, we do not have enough funds to get it to all the people who want and need it.  We have a manual and all the materials and protocols to make this available. Our goal is to raise 60K by the end of 2018. With this money, we can provide MAP Training to groups everywhere through our train the trainer program and our weekly protocol which will be offered online. 

Seriously, we can use very penny.  So far, we have been doing this on our own and mostly out of our own pocket.  But we really want to get it out to the many people who contact us literally every single day. Please help us help women learn how to recover from the memories of sexual violence. Thank you!
