In this webinar, the presenter will describe a sexual ethics model and offer case studies that further explore the basic concepts of polyamory and kink lifestyles. Beyond the basic language and creating a sex positive treatment approach, how can therapists really learn to offer competent treatment? The topics covered in this webinar are: boundaries, negotiating and renegotiating contracts both verbal and written, case studies, power dynamics, and kink/poly in relation to trauma. A unique case study in which a client used kink to treat their trauma and become more comfortable sexually will be discussed.
