Title of Workshop: Treating Sexual Dysfunction With Fun and Accessible Solutions

Date: October 13, 2023, 12 pm MDT - 3:00 pm MDT

Location: Online Synchronous – registration needed to view on-demand recording

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.

Learning Objectives:
● Identify 3 or more common sexual problems that clients present in sex therapy.
● Critically reframe the “dysfunction” model into a strengths based perspective.
● Understand and apply the PLISSIT model for diagnosing and treating sexual problems.
● Identify 6 types of toys, sexual wellness tools, and over the counter options for common
sexual problems.
