Sex Therapy Education
From the perspectives of a survivor, author, psychotherapist and activist, Farzana Doctor will provide clinicians with information about female genital cutting/mutilation, including the four types, and will address common misconceptions, myths and stereotypes. She’s also discusses common physical, emotion and sexual aftereffects of FGM/C and trauma-informed interventions for clinicians who are interested in working with this population. Given that FGM/C is known to occur in at least 92 countries, including in North America, this short course will be essential learning!

9:25-9:45 (20 minutes): Understanding FGM/C emotional, physical and sexual aftereffects
9:45-10:15 (30 minutes): focus on clinician skill-building
10:15-10:30 (15 minutes): understanding current activism and how to be an ally
10:30-11 (30 minutes): participant Q&A
