8:00 AM - 9:30 AM: Sexual Health Awareness Session 3
From Separation to Sexploration: Navigating the Liminal Landscape of Post-Divorce Sex
As sexual health specialists, we help clients navigate a lifetime of ongoing sexual awareness and evolution. We witness their transitions through predictable stages of sexual development, accompanied by LESS predictable stages of emotional, social and relational experiences. In this refreshingly narrative and inspiring workshop, divorce specialist Gaelyn Rae Emerson applies her work with more than one hundred divorced and permanently separated women— each following the end of an intimate relationship predicated by sexual infidelity, deception or rejection— to a presentation that features the high, low and "oh, hell no!" moments of her clients' reentry into single sexuality. With passion and humor, Gaelyn presents an eclectic spectrum of socially diverse case studies, each chosen to broaden our professional understanding of women's most private sexual segues. Arrive to this workshop prepared to say "I didn't see THAT coming," and then leave with newfound appreciation and respect for this unique (and often underestimated) demographic.
