The Foundations of Clinical Sex Therapy workshop offers a transformative learning experience, fostering the development of socially responsible practitioners with a strong foundation in human sexuality and adherence to ethical standards. This comprehensive workshop goes beyond traditional education, promoting ethical consciousness and cultural competence, empowering participants to openly discuss sex with their clients and assess and determine if they are qualified to offer services to clients with issues of a sexual nature. Through engaging lectures, discussions and interactive exercises, participants will gain an understanding of the complex nature of human sexuality while embracing diversity and respect. The workshop covers important topics such as sexual health across the lifespan, sexual dysfunctions, desire discrepancy, and the intersection of sexuality with illness and trauma. Ethical conduct is emphasized throughout, exploring guidelines, boundaries, and ethical decision-making. By the end of this workshop, participants will emerge with the necessary knowledge and skills to deliver client-centred care, making a positive impact in the lives of their clients and contributing to the advancement of the sex therapy field.
