The importance of touch in holistic well-being is well documented, yet many forms of touch are prohibited by the ethical and legal boundaries of talk therapists. There is a vast world of touch-based modalities that can be utilized in service of client care, but what do practitioners of these modalities actually do in sessions with a client? What are their ethical boundaries and best practices? How do clinicians find and vet these practitioners for use in collaboration in a client’s work? This two-hour introduction to the world of Somatic Sexuality Professionals will focus on three touch-based modalities (surrogate partner therapy, somatic sex education/sexological bodywork, and professional cuddling) and discuss the guiding philosophies and practices of each modality as well as review their ethical boundaries and best practices of each of these modalities.
- Attendees will be able to identify the guiding philosophies and practices of three touch-based modalities.
- Attendees will be able to distinguish the ethical boundaries and best practices of each of these three modalities as well as identify any areas of overlap between the three.
- Attendees will be able to identify how to refer a client or student to a Somatic Sexuality Professional.
