Sex is something that many therapists feel uncomfortable discussing. This is despite the fact that it is a part of a client's broader understanding of themselves which is often interwoven with mental health challenges. In this two-hour workshop we will consider how our own attitudes around sex, sexuality and physical intimacy- may impact our work with clients. We will explore the ways in which sexuality is understood in cultural context and within psychology, psychotherapy and psychiatry –questioning the common approach of delineating ‘normal functional’ sexual expression from ‘abnormal, dysfunctional’ sexual expression and taking a look at the goal-focused view of sexuality and sexual challenges. We will consider ways of working across sexual diversity in an affirming manner (including LGBTQIA, heterosexual, and kink sexualities), as well as exploring how the sexual imagination of fantasy and desire is a helpful in a clinical setting – an often unexplored – way of coming to a more inclusive understanding of ourselves and our clients.
1. Analyze current sexual attitude and understand. Identity core sexual themes. 2. Identify areas of sexual competency and investigate additional educational opportunities.3. Discuss how counter-transference may be showing up in the therapy room. Plan for conversations that may challenge personal beliefs.
