Sexual Ethics

Being an informed therapist with any client
Program Description

Participants will enhance their ability to help clients manage sexual boundaries and challenge their own preconceived notions about sex and morality. Therapists will question their own sexual ethics as it relates to consent and non-consent. An essential part of teaching sexual ethics is getting people to reflect honestly both on what they believe and on how they have been led to those beliefs. Sexual ethics involve issues such as consent, sexual orientation, gender identification, sexual relations and procreation.

This workshop will explore sexual ethics with technology, managing conflicts of interests as it relates to erotic transference from the clients, and ethics as it relates to working with sexual infidelity, clients who are managing sexual partners where STI/STD are present and ethical positions on sex work. Together we will explore how sexual pleasure is often narrowly defined in terms of heteronormative penetration, and whether it is possible to use pornography or pay for sexual acts if we strive to be ethically sexual citizens.

Sexual ethics are more than our personal choices and preferences; they are the ways we integrate care and respect for others, mutuality, and reciprocity into sexual practices. Thinking about the messages that influence sexual practices requires that we critically interrogate socio-cultural discourses about gender and sexuality and the contexts in which they circulate. This will be the framework for the course.

Learning Objectives

In this webinar, therapists will:

  • gain an understanding of sexual ethics and technology
  • learn to identify and manage conflicts of interest
  • define sexual boundaries and specify erotic transference
  • explore sexual boundaries with clients along the lines of erotic transference from the client to the therapist
  • examine their ethics around working with sexual infidelity and HIV
