Sex and Trauma, for many of our clients, are all too often intertwined. This holds true even when the trauma in question is not sexual in nature. For this reason, trauma informed interventions are important for sex therapists to have in their proverbial toolboxes. This webinar is designed to provide trauma informed frameworks to veteran practitioners and fledgling sex therapists alike. Participants will learn how to apply familiar sex therapy techniques to trauma informed care, as well as how to process sex and trauma with couples, individuals, and partners of survivors. 

This program has met the requirements of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and has been approved for 2.5 CEs. These CE’s may be applied toward AASECT certification and renewal of certification.
