Exploring Trans Sexuality Within a Body-Inclusive Model
3 CE HOURS
We all grow up with toxic narratives of how our bodies are “supposed to” function and how we “should” experience pleasure, but for trans and nonbinary folx these narratives pose particular problems, as they foreclose the radical possibilities of trans sexualities. Unfortunately, few therapists are trained to help trans and non-binary folx navigate erotic embodiment, and the therapeutic relationship is frequently marked by imaginative failures concerning our erotic lives. This workshop proposes a model of sitting with trans and non-binary clients and hosting pleasure-centered explorations of sexualities and erotic embodiment.
