Somatic Sexual Healing: A Workshop for Helping Professionals

Saturday, June 10, 2017 at 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM PDT

Temescal District,
Oakland, CA 94608

Talking about sexuality and pleasure can go a long way towards helping your clients overcome their challenges. But there are also limits to what words can accomplish, which is where experiential practices can be useful. Somatic sex educator Charlie Glickman will teach you a series of safe, powerful, and effective tools to teach your clients about embodiment, sexuality, and communication, while also giving you valuable and clinically-relevant information that will help you to support them. Some of these exercises include touching the hand, and possibly the forearm, so if you can shake hands with a client, you can integrate these skills into your practice immediately. You can also guide a couple through these exercises, allowing you to observe their interactions and offer guidance and feedback.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:
·         Describe at least three ways in which somatic practices can support sexual healing in your clients.
·         Demonstrate at least six different somatic exercises for exploring embodiment, sexuality, and communication.
·         Discuss at least four clinically-relevant concerns that can be supported or explored through experiential work.
·         Identify at least three reasons why these practices would not be appropriate or effective for a particular client.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll have plenty of tools and practices to gather valuable information and help your clients break out of their patterns and create new ways to talk about and explore touch.
