Event description

Description

  • Do you professionally talk with people to help them improve their experience of sex, intimacy and/or pleasure? (eg Sex & Intimacy Coach/Counselor/Therapist, Sex Educator, Somatica Practitioner, Tantra Practitioner/Teacher etc)
  • Have you ever gotten lost when traumatic material arises, or do you want to avoid doing something potentially re-traumatizing?
  • Do you want to infuse your talking and listening skills with trauma savvy practices and principles to help you transform sexual shame and trauma more effectively?
  • Would you like to feel more confident, grounded and effective in your work a Sexpert… helping people increase their capacity for more trust, pleasure and healthy boundaries?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, we do hope you will join us for “Trauma Savvy Skills for Sexperts: Talking Skills".

This 2 day weekend workshop with Ariel Giarretto and Lorina Manzanita (see bios below) is for sex and intimacy oriented practitioners and educators who use one on one dialogue.

Participants will learn about and experience a science based, trauma informed set of skills and principles. This work will help you build greater resilience and capacity as a practitioner and in your work with your clients.

In the absence of a solid, nervous system informed understanding of trauma it is easy for us practitioners to unknowingly trigger and retraumatize sensitive clients. Our goal is to educate you about the different types of trauma reactions- how to identify them, how to work with them. With more capacity to take in what you have to offer, clients can get to greater degrees of beauty, connection and aliveness in their whole selves. Increasing your overall understanding of what is going on with the client, and knowing how to handle when things are “too much” thus increasing the chances of people staying in treatment.

We’ll offer a set of skills and principles that can help you and the people in your care cultivate more intimacy, pleasure and empowerment. Rather than reacting to trauma as a problem, you can skillfully meet encounters with trauma as healing opportunities.

During this particular workshop we will be focusing on helping you be more effective and clinically precise in your tracking, talking and listening skills.

This workshop is also an opportunity to help you discover a few things about your own trauma patterns and how these get in the way of your own relationship to your sexuality, pleasure and desires.

We will also learn how to work with one of the biggest and deepest barriers to fulfilling, intimate, pleasure rich connections-- shame.

If you want to feel more confident, effective and grounded in your work and if you want an opportunity to deepen in your own personal healing work around sexual shame and trauma, please join Ariel Giarretto MS, SEP and Lorina Manzanita MA, SEP for "Trauma Savvy Skills for Sexperts".

Unlike other trauma trainings you'll have the benefit of:

  • Learning from a practicing Sex Therapist and trained sexological bodyworker who is also a Senior SE Trauma Trainer with decades of experience and a Somatic Sex and Relationship Coach and certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and experienced bodyworker.
  • Training with your peers in a sex-positive environment
  • Acquiring trauma skills and theory that is directly relevant to sexuality and intimacy
  • Avoiding taking a lengthy program in a sex-avoidant culture in order to acquire trauma skills
