Working with Sex Workers 101
Angie Gunn LCSW, CST, Raquel Savage MS & Melissa Paulino LMSW
In this recorded workshop we expand our knowledge of sex work and its current socio cultural presence in the world. In addition to learning about sex work generally, we will explore current clinical strategies for treating those in the industry. Just as multicultural and LGBTQ+ inclusivity has expanded our skills with specific populations, we need specific skills and tools for treating sex workers ethically and equitably. Treatment interventions we explore in this recording include liberation psychology approaches, calling professionals to enhance critical consciousness and challenge the impact of colonization, patriarchy, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, sexism and mononormativity in sex work.
This is an introductory recording serving as a teaser for the full Equitable Care Certification which will be offered starting in July 2023, including 22 CE hours of sex work specific content.
