Understanding sexual and gender diversity adds strength to your practice in queer therapy. When we explore sexual and gender diversity we also explore the unspoken social scripts and mores about sex and gender. In this workshop you will be introduced to issues faced by sexual and gender diverse clients and best-practice examples of working with these population groups. You will also explore how to make your practice diverse-friendly. This one-day workshop brings together recent research and literature on gender and sexual diversity from a multi-disciplinary perspective. It introduces participants to key concepts, issues with coming out, recent research on homophobia and mental health issues faced by non-heterosexual identified individuals. Participants will also explore the application of practice standards to enhance their practice (and practices) to become more diverse-friendly. Find out more >>

Sexing Therapy: Sex Therapy for the Non-Sex Therapist is a one-day workshop introducing practitioners to working with sexual issues. Many health practitioners find initiating talk about sex and people’s sex lives daunting and, in some cases rude and invasive. Yet, part of a healthy life is a healthy sex life. This workshop aims to de-mystify sex in therapy. This workshop is also day one of the Core Concepts in Sex Therapy program. Find out more >>
