Mar 10 (Wed) 10 am – 1 pm (EST) – Intersectionality with Joanne Bagshaw, Ph.D., LCPC
Social inequities contribute to sexual dysfunction and create barriers for oppressed and minoritized groups to access pleasure. Sex therapists are in a unique position to address the effects of systemic oppression by using an intersectional analysis to help create practices that build resilience and resistance to oppression and help the communities we serve access and experience sexual pleasure.
Mar 10 (Wed) 2 pm – 6 pm (EST) – Sexism in Relationships: COVID-19 and the Impact on Working Women with Joanne Bagshaw, Ph.D., LCPC
Outdated gender roles have put women, and particularly women who are mothers, under extraordinary stress during the pandemic. The unequal distribution of labor in the home is magnified during the pandemic and the mass exodus of women forced to leave the workforce is causing immediate economic and psychological stress and deepening inequities. In this workshop, we will take a deep dive in understanding how we got here, and what we, as sex therapists can do about it.
Mar 11 (Thu) 10 am – 1 pm (EST) – Fantasy and Sexual Intimacy with Tammy Nelson, Ph.D.
Kink Competence, BDSM, Alternative Sexual Practices
Researchers have made huge advances in understanding the science behind gender and sexuality in the last few decades. This research has the potential for huge impact on human rights, personal well-being, and relationships, particularly for sexual and gender minorities. In this course we will examine the current state of knowledge regarding the science of gender identity, sexuality, and gender socialization, with a focus on the interplay of nature and nurture at the biological level.
Mar 12 (Fri) 10 am – 1 pm (EST) – You’re Never too Old: Assessing, Diagnosing, and Treating Aging Populations with Jane Fleishman, Ph.D.
While sex at an older age exists, the human body doesn’t function sexually the same way it did when we were younger. Questions about painful penetration, hormonal changes, and erection dysfunction are explained in this honest look at sex over 60. With frank discussion, Dr. Fleishman will cover the diagnoses, assessments, and treatments of sexual health challenges in aging populations.

Mar 13 (Sat) 2 pm – 6 pm (EST) – Relational Self-Awareness: A Model for Integrating Emotional, Relational, and Sexual Health Across the Lifespan with Alexandra Solomon, Ph.D.
Relational Self-Awareness is an integrative approach for helping individuals and couples love (and be loved) with curiosity, authenticity, and integrity. In this training, Dr. Solomon will teach this model, which she has developed over her two decades of work as a couple’s therapist, professor, and relationship educator. We will explore the complexities of the modern landscape of love and how our clinical work is affected by these complexities. You will learn the five pillars of Relational Self-Awareness, and how they apply to all stages of relationships development. You will leave the training with tools you can put into practice immediately to enhance the relational lives of the people you serve.

|Dr. Wednesday Martin is an author, social researcher, and cultural critic who has focused for over two decades on topics including gender and popular culture, female sexuality, and motherhood. She views the world through the lenses of anthropology, primatology, and feminism and her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Refinery29, The Forward, and Time among others. Her books–#1 New York Times bestseller Primates of Park Avenue and Stepmonster–ignited controversy and started conversations about motherhood, misogyny, marriage, and power. Her new book, UNTRUE: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Infidelity Is Wrong and How the New Science Can Set Us Free considers the long history of misrepresenting female sexuality in science, medicine, psychology, and popular culture. Through interviews with 30 experts and women from every walk of life, UNTRUE turns much of what we think about women, infidelity and female sexuality on its head and aims to start a conversation about female sexual entitlement and the future of pleasure, power, and relationships.|
