Alternative Relationship Education Workshop Event
From the venue:
Despite efforts to maintain non-judgmental attitudes, most mental health professionals know so little about sexual and relational diversity that their responses to clients who "come out" to them can range from off-putting surprise to a disapproval that has anecdotally even done damage to clients, and created barriers to future treatment. We hope to prevent these experiences by educating mental health professionals in the areas of sexual, gender and relational diversity - specifically alternative relationship structures, considerations of relational attraction, sexual identity, and gender expression. Presenters have been selected from local professionals with experience in treating these populations, many with involvement and national exposure in the development of mental health standards in this area.
This workshop will have four classes and a group panel discussion, providing six CEs* (pending approval). There will be a lunch break in the middle of the day.
