Healthcare & Intimacy Virtual Symposium (Virtual)

September 24

Saturday, September 24, 2022, 7:00am-2:30pm (PT)

Hosted by Healwell. We will examine how healthcare providers’ discomfort around sex and intimacy leads to less-than-optimal care. This event is open to providers, patients, and advocates.

Our goals for this day-long event:

  • Explore the idea of intimacy as so much more than sex
  • Open the door to the reality that powerful therapeutic relationships rely on our comfort with non-sexual intimacy
  • Soften some of the taboo around sex and bodily pleasure so we can allow our patients and clients the opportunity to discuss these topics in a safe, supportive space

Session topics include:

  • Sexuality and Disability 101
  • Talking the Talk: Interdisciplinary Strategies for Inviting Talk About Sex and Sexuality into a Holistic Healthcare Approach
  • Who Gets to Have Sex? Broadening Our Lens    
  • Cultural Safety and Intimacy

*Cost: $75-$150. Registration and more information here.
