Event Details

WORKSHOP DETAILS:
Phoenix students recieve 12 placement hours for attendance

The focus of this workshop is to develop the competence and confidence to work with client issues of sexuality and intimacy, in a holistic and ethical manner. Although much of mainstream sex therapy relies on a behavioural approach, this workshop will consider current theories that deal with sexuality from a much broader perspective. Students will learn how to approach sexuality in such a way as to create a safe and honest environment with a client, and cultivate the skills required to support clients to explore the many layers of a sexuality issue.

Students will gain the skills to develop a conceptual framework to map sexuality across cognitive, emotional, body centred and spiritual approaches, including both mainstream and alternative models. Throughout the two days there will be extensive use of case studies, providing students with an understanding of the variety of sexuality issues clients can bring to therapy. Students will therefore gain practical experience on how to assess, map and address these issues with clients.

At the end of this workshop, students will have both a broad knowledge of the kinds of sexuality and intimacy issues clients can bring to therapy, as well as practical and conceptual models to work with the complexity of an issue, leading to a sense of confidence in how to work with clients from an ethical and informed perspective.

This will be a formal workshop, focusing on developing clinical skills, and will not be a forum to discuss personal sexual issues, nor will it be about learning new sexual techniques. A focus on boundaries and ethics will be emphasised to ensure all participants feel safe to explore these issues in a professional manner.

Workshop Facilitator:
Bridget Pannell
Bridget Pannel

Bridget has a background in corporate management and coaching and has been teaching at Phoenix for the last eight years. In working with others, her focus is to access what lies underneath the initial symptom that brings a client to therapy. In creating a safe and curious environment, the core layers of an issue can be brought into awareness and therefore naturally held and healed. This in turn cultivates a sense of ease and intimacy with all of life, through a spontaneous letting go of barriers that create divisions within and between us.

Her training ranges from psychology to sexuality to spirituality and she is currently finishing a PhD in education at La Trobe University on how to perceive and live without these preconceived divisions.

The benefit of these programs is working together with people who share a common belief in greater communication, sharing and being challenged by new ideas and practices.

We invite you to become involved in our programs and be part of a wider community and network of individuals exploring personal development and spirituality in a safe, fun and creative way with our experienced facilitators.
