Working with Consensually Non-Monogamous Clients: Shift Your Paradigm
Come learn about the world of consensual non-monogamy that so many of our therapy clients are already exploring. We need to shift our paradigm and lens from one we’ve internalized in a heteronormative, mononormative patriarchy to something different.
Whether we ourselves are monogamous, polyamorous or something else, we all need to examine our own biases in order to affirm our clients’ potential joy. We need to unpack the systems, beliefs, and assumptions we’ve learned ourselves in order to fully show up with clients challenging those norms.
Let’s unlearn and explore new liberatory possibilities together!

October 13: Treating Sexual Dysfunction with and Accessible Solutions
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.
October 20: Survival Magic: Assessment, Treatment Planning, & Safety Planning
In this training, we will explore non-pathologizing frameworks for approaching assessment, treatment planning, and safety planning. Techniques discussed will center the wisdom of our survival strategies with attention to somatic and parts work lenses.
