- Clinical concerns about BDSM practices?
- Concerned about meeting clients on the Fetish scene?
- Want to explore personal/professional concerns?
How does the personal inform your clinical work?
Would you like a space to reflect on your own practice with clients engaging in BDSM practices and lifestyles?
Are you interested to explore some of your own countertransference and personal reactions to BDSM/Kink?
These aren't introductory training workshops on BDSM; Su Connan runs those for us (see here).
We have been meeting for over three years. You're welcome to attend one or more meetings.
It is likely that close attention may need to be paid at the beginning of each meeting to negotiate the potential dual relationships and roles incurred in living and working within the same small communities.
You will be expected to abide by confidentiality and 'Chatham House' rules.
Please note the following before registering for this course:
It was agreed some while ago to make this group just for kink-identified therapists due to the personal nature of the material brought of living and working within the same communities where there are complex boundary issues to negotiate. We spend a fair amount of time on this each group. The group is at a point in its life where separate time seems helpful. A bit like how gay men or lesbians have our own spaces to meet and talk about issues relevant to being gay or lesbian.
If you’re looking to consult a Kink-knowledgeable therapist about a client, please email firstname.lastname@example.org who can find someone to consult with.
This is a closed group and open only to people who have previously attended, i.e. we're currently not accepting new members. Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions.
