Unpacking Sexuality for Therapists

The following workshop will be hosted by Insight Counseling Duluth. It is free for MAMFT members!  The cost for non-members is $80.  Earn 4 CEUs!

Find registration below. Members must be logged-in to receive free registration.

Workshop Description:

Why is sexuality so difficult for many of us to talk about – with our clients and for ourselves? How do our own experiences with sexuality inform the ways that we work with our clients around this topic? In this experiential workshop, we will help you examine your own attitudes and beliefs around sexuality and how this impacts your interactions with your clients. We will define the cultural, familial and personal components that influence how we develop our views of sexuality. We’ll then provide structured reflection for you to consider how these components have helped you define sexuality for yourself, and if/how you might want to change your current conceptions. Finally, we will explore how to translate your self-knowledge to support your clients in addressing sexual issues.

Workshop Objectives:

Participants will:
1. Understand the cultural, familial and personal components that influence how we develop our views of sexuality.
2. Be able to define their own sexual experiences and how these experiences influence their therapeutic work.
3. Feel (more) comfortable intentionally addressing sexuality and sexual issues with clients.
