Program offers 2.0 CEs for Psychologists, 2.0 CEUs for Illinois state Counselors and Social Workers*, and 2.0 BBS California CEUs for LPCCs, LPSW, and LMFTs. Live Webinar Event held via Zoom.
Since the Association of Counseling Sexology & Sexual Wellness (ACSSW) recently became an Organizational Affiliate of the American Counseling Association, ACSSW is working to embody its mission to be the primary authoritative voice on the human sexuality-related components of mental health service delivery. As such, ACSSW’s leadership will present this workshop together, demonstrating a comprehensive and diverse approach to the topic.
This session will primarily seek to summarize the recent research, advocacy, clinical practice, and training advancements in the field of counseling sexology. Sexuality continues to be an often-neglected part of clinical training for mental health providers. ACSSW will, through this workshop, elicit from the audience and address as a team the sexuality-related questions and issues most relevant to the attendees. This session will provide a case conference atmosphere between professionals.
After attending this intermediate-level workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the current gaps in sexology research, advocacy, clinical practice, and training
2. Identify at least 1 meaningful way to address these gaps within their current work setting
