Let's Talk About Sex: Becoming a Kink-Informed Provider

A Live, Interactive Webinar

March 10, 2021 10:00am – 1:15pm

In this 3 credit course, practitioners will learn basic terminology related to Kink and BDSM. We will review topics that might arise in therapy related to kink practices. Practitioners will be able to differentiate between positive and consensual kinky relationships such as Dom/sub relationships and unhealthy or abusive relationship dynamics. We will identify barriers to discussing sex in therapy and increase comfort in these conversations in the clinical setting. Practitioners will leave with resources to share with clients who are interested in Kink or considering new types of relationships.

Target Audience: Mental Health Professionals Content Level: Beginning to Intermediate
