How do you provide ethical and competent clinical services when your client’s love life looks very different from yours? Despite efforts to maintain non-judgmental attitudes, most mental health professionals know so little about sexual and relational diversity that their responses to clients who “come out” to them can range from off-putting surprise to a disapproval that has anecdotally even done damage to clients, and created barriers to future treatment. We hope to prevent these experiences by educating mental health professionals in the areas of sexual and relational diversity – specifically alternative relationship structures (consensual power dynamics and/or non-monogamy), considerations of the varieties of relational attraction, sexual orientations and identities. Presenters have been selected from professionals with experience in treating these populations, and who are engaged in ongoing related research. This workshop will provide a total of four CEs* (pending approval from GPA, NASWGA, LPCAGA, GAMFT).
