Sexual Health Conversations as an Essential Ally for Improving Trauma Treatment: A Series
Presented by The Harvey Institute
December 2, 2020
The Child Abuse Training and Technical Assistance Centers (CATTA) Training Project is hosting a webinar titled Sexual Health Conversations as an Essential Ally for Improving Trauma Treatment: A Series presented by Al Killen-Harvey and Douglas Braun-Harvey on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 from 10:00 am – 11:30 am PST.
Children, youth, and adults rarely encounter mental health professionals who proactively assess and integrate client sexual health within all stages of trauma treatment. Prioritization of sexual safety, while essential to current best practices for trauma treatment, too often fails to address client sexual health. Unfortunately, few trauma treatment professionals possess the comfort, willingness, and ability necessary for a sexual health assessment and clinical case formulation. This workshop will prepare attendees for initiating and responding to sexual health conversations with children, youth, parents, and colleagues.
This webinar is the first in a 3-part series of trainings. By signing up for this webinar, you are not committing to the entire series; however, attendance at parts 2 and 3 is contingent upon completion of the previous part(s).
