12 CPD Hours
The aim of the workshop is to encourage thought and discussion on the subject of sexuality, from a practical point of view and how it relates to the practice of counselling and psychotherapy, the development of the therapeutic relationship and current perspectives on the subject.
This course will be of interest to therapists and therapists in training or those who have a clinical role with clients experiencing emotional or psychological distress.
The workshop will include content aimed at deepening participants’ knowledge, skills and competencies in working with sexual issues. Sexuality is a vital dimension of the human experience and is likely to emerge in many ways. The two days will include discourse, discussion and practice work in the following areas:
- Sexuality in the clinical space;
- Working with diversity;
- Sexual functioning and dysfunction;
- Therapists’ comfort in exploring sexual issues;
- Clinical skills for exploring sexuality.
The workshop will include a blend of theoretical lectures, experiential exercises, skills training, group work and class discussion. Learners will be encouraged to reflect, engage and participate in a range of experiential work designed to increase comfort and competence in exploring the area of sexuality in clinical practice.
