Working with Sex Workers 101
Angie Gunn LCSW, CST, Raquel Savage & 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 includes twelve 3.5 hour courses (36 AASECT CE hours) of sex work specific content.
This program meets the requirements of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and is approved for 2 CE credits. These CE credits may be applied toward AASECT certification and renewal of certification.
