7 CE Hours

Presenter: Kayla Concannon, MS, OTR/L (she/her/hers)

Recorded workshop available via video on demand

Description:

 This seven-hour course will offer practitioners a solid foundation for working with neurodivergent clients, inclusive of all types of gender and sexual expression. The course encourages self-reflection on a range of topics within the neurodiversity therapy framework, including stigma, biases, and models of consent. Each hour will feature a new learning objective, including topical slides, input from self-advocates, videos, and activities to encourage contemporary approaches to working clients who may learn differently and experience relationships and sexuality in a variety of ways that, for many practitioners, has been previously unconsidered.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain what neurodiversity is
  • Discuss how to compare neurodivergent and neurotypical relationships with self, family, friends, community, online, and romantic and/or sexual partners.
  • Describe healthy versus unhealthy neurodivergent sexual exploration.
  • Discuss three clinical examples of ways to help their neurodivergent clients feel less pathologized and more sexually self-actualized.
  • Explain 2 models of consent
  • Discuss trauma informed vulnerabilities
  • Explain how couples where one is neurodivergent can have great sex
