Maximizing Your Role as a Kinky or Non-Monogamous Provider
Description: As Kinky and non-monogamous professionals, we will explore at length using your own sexual identity and expression as a tool for creating safety, aligning with your client, and creating new paradigms of healing and relating to others. While therapist sexuality is often taboo, therapists can leverage their own experiences and exploration to deepen the therapeutic relationship and create safety.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: identify barriers to their personal sexual expression and understand ways to approach these barriers; demonstrate increased skills in boundary setting, asserting their personal rights to pleasure, and exploring ways to be authentic in different settings; describe race, gender, sexuality, and ability specific hindrances to sexual expression and recognize tools to confront this when observed; formulate practical skills for working with diverse clients and using their own identity to facilitate increased effectiveness.
