Pink Therapy in association with the Sex Positive Institute (Warsaw, Poland) is holding a three-day international training in Warsaw on 7th – 9th October 2018.

This advanced workshop is for mental and sexual health professionals (counsellors, psychotherapists, medical doctors, social workers, HIV/STI consultants, clinical sexologists, & LGBT counsellors, relationship counsellors, sex coaches and educators) who wish to further their knowledge about contemporary approaches to working with diversity in human sexuality.

We recognise that many clinicians struggle to know how best to respond to their lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender clients when they seek guidance about their sex lives and their relationships.  They may feel even less confident when treating people who engage in consensual BDSM and fetish practices.

If they have been fortunate to undertake a sexological training, they will be aware that most sexological training focuses a heteronormative paradigm of fertility & reproduction and presenting quite outdated models of understanding sexual performance and sexual difficulties and this knowledge might not fit the lives of many of their patients.

Our three-day training will expand your knowledge of human sexuality, update your awareness of sexual science and sexual health and allow you opportunities to examine your own beliefs and assumptions about sexuality.


This training by a team of experienced clinical sexologists and psychotherapists:
