About the event

This course: "Cultural Sensitivity in Comprehensive Sexual History Assessments" is designed to equip therapists with the skills necessary to conduct sexual history assessments with empathy, cultural sensitivity, and inclusivity. It covers understanding a client's sexuality within the context of their cultural background, worldview, relationship with their body, and the interplay between innate sexuality and learned experiences. The content emphasizes the importance of establishing rapport, using open-ended questions, mirroring client terminology, avoiding assumptions, and explaining the purpose of questions to ensure a non-judgmental and respectful dialogue. It also addresses the need for therapists to reflect on their biases and the uniqueness of each client's sexual journey.

In This Training:

1. Develop the ability to conduct sexual history assessments with empathy, avoiding judgment and creating a comfortable dialogue. 

2. Use open-ended questions and mirror client terminology to foster understanding and respect in discussions about sexuality. 

3. Implement strategies for establishing rapport and trust before discussing sexual history, including explaining the purpose of questions. 

4. Apply culturally sensitive and appropriate methods in sexual history assessments, acknowledging the diversity of clients' backgrounds. 

5. Reflect on personal biases and sexual journeys to minimize their impact on the therapeutic relationship and improve the quality of care provided.
