S.ex A.nd R.eligion - Navigating Personal Responses to Clients' Faith Beliefs in Sex Therapy
Description: Sex therapists are often confronted with clients whose views are different from their own. In working with clients with deeply held religious beliefs there may be an overt and/or covert struggle between the therapists training and an experience of systemic rigidity in the thinking of the individual and or couple. This workshop creates an opportunity for the therapist to confront their own biases and access those aspects of self that allow for greater connection and acceptance.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: identify how a previously unidentified bias towards faith may be softened to enhance their ability to access faith as a resource for sexual positivity in their work with religious clients.
