Tracey Shors,  Ph.D. - Dr. Shors, the lead researcher of the MAP program (Mental and Physical training) may have found another way to treat victims of sexual violence.  MAP involves six weeks of twice-weekly, hour-long sessions divided into 30 minutes of silent meditation and 30 minutes of aerobic exercise. Upon completion of this combination program, women in this study with a history of sexual violence reportedly had fewer ruminative and trauma-related thoughts than women who only practiced meditation or only exercised.   Psychology Today - September 7, 2018
