Presented by Gary Hirshberg, LCSW. This two session workshop will challenge clinicians to look at our own deeply held beliefs about sex and coupling, specifically what is ‘perversion’ and what is ‘healthy’ coupling. Most of us have come of age and been trained to still consider kink as deviant and as deriving from early childhood trauma or exposure to overt sex. Most of us think of multiple partners, open relationships and group marriages as resulting from overly sexual men. This workshop will challenge all of that and more as we explore the reality that kink is just as valid an expression of healthy sexuality as missionary position between a male and a female and that polyamory is also a deeply embedded aspect of identity for many, just as monogamy is for some. With more of our patients opening up to all aspects of their identity and sexuality we clinicians need to catch up.
