Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*And Don't Have to Be Afraid to Ask!)
Selin Caka, LFMTA
Join us for a lively presentation and discussion about sexuality in clinical practice. We will explore how, as practitioners, our attitudes and ideas about sex impact our work with clients. We will also learn valuable information about unconventional sexual practices (i.e. Bondage, Domination/Submission and Sadomasochism (BDSM) and Consensual Non-Monogamy). This presentation aims to increase practitioners’ confidence in approaching and exploring sexuality with clients.
*Registrants will receive an email with a Sexual Self Intake form one week prior to the meeting. Please take some time to answer and/or reflect on the questions as you prepare to attend the meeting. Your answers will not be collected and don't need to be shared. The purpose of this is to help participants explore their, sometimes hidden, beliefs and feelings about sexuality. Extra forms will be available at the door.
1. Participants will improve skills in identifying and managing their countertransference around sexuality when working with clients in the clinical setting.
2. Participants will learn information regarding alternative sexual lifestyles that they may encounter in their clinical practice (i.e. Bondage, Domination/Submission and Sadomasochism (BDSM) and Consensual Non-Monogamy).
3. Participants will learn strategies for sensitively approaching clients regarding sexuality, especially those with preferences different from their own.
