An Advanced Look at Polyamory and Kink Lifestyles in Therapy
Date: April 6, 2018
Time: 3:00 - 4:30 PM Eastern
Price: $50 members / $60 non-members
In this webinar, the presenter will describe a sexual ethics model and offer case studies that further explore the basic concepts of polyamory and kink lifestyles. Beyond the basic language and creating a sex positive treatment approach, how can therapists really learn to offer competent treatment? The topics covered in this webinar are: boundaries, negotiating and renegotiating contracts both verbal and written, case studies, power dynamics, and kink/poly in relation to trauma. A unique case study in which a client used kink to treat their trauma and become more comfortable sexually will be discussed.
This webinar is Part 2 of the past webinar, How to Approach Kink and Polyamory Clients in Therapy. It is not required to take both courses.
Presenter: Angela Skurtu, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Missouri and an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. She is also a speaker and author of two books, Helping Couples Overcome Infidelity: A Therapist's Manual, and Pre-Marital Counseling: A Guide for Clinicians. She runs a YouTube channel and is cohost of the About Sex Podcast.
