It’s perfectly normal for people to have sexual problems and challenges during their lifetime. Yet some of these experiences can be pathologized by therapists and health care providers. Clients can feel shame, isolation, and lack of support. Even if we see ourselves as sex positive providers, it is imperative that we have specific tools and solutions for clients to address sexual problems.
In this training we’ll demystify some common sexual challenges and help us reframe pathological approaches to sex therapy and education. Molly Adler, AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, and Matie Fricker, Sexuality Educator and Owner of award-winning, education based sex shop Self Serve Toys are excited to collaborate and co-teach again. Matie and Molly love to bring fun, lightness, humor, permission, and support to therapists, healers, educators, and clients that want to boost their skills and confidence around these sensitive topics.
