This workshop will outline a range of theoretical frameworks for working with sex and sexuality and show how these have evolved from the work of Freud to the present day. Participants will also explore the reality of sexual practice in the 21st century.

Participants will consider how their own attitudes to talking about sex and sexuality might impact upon their client work. There will be an opportunity to consider how the issue of sex has been addressed in participants’ practice to date and to identify any potential blind-spots. This module will also introduce a range of tools for engaging with clients on issues of sexuality.
