Important CEU Information (Updated 10/13/20)

Live-Webinars: Defined as “synchronous” events on specific days where you may interact with the presenter in real time.

The Georgia Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers and Marriage & Family Therapists:

The Georgia Composite Board has approved all Live Webinars to be counted the same as Live (including Ethics!!!) from here forward. Therefore, masters level licensed therapists will not have to attend a live workshop ever again.

The Georgia Board of Psychologists:

Has approved Live Webinars and On-Demand Webinars to be counted the same as live workshops for the remainder of this renewal period (including Ethics!!!). We are still awaiting The Board’s decision regarding the next renewal cycle.

Educational Objectives:

  • Identify sexual human anatomy, both internal and external, and function of these structures, as well as common medical and psychology factors that may impact functioning
  • Define sexual, gender, orientation/attraction, and relationship diversity and identify inclusive language
  • Trace the sexual development of children and adolescents with a special focus on how to identify non-developmentally appropriate behavior that may indicate sexual abuse
  • Examine the diversity of sexual slang and how usage may impact clients
  • Recognize the cognitive Dual Control mechanisms for sexual inhibition and exhibition
  • Distinguish between atypical sexual behaviors/lifestyles and diagnoseable sexual pathology
  • Apply the PLISSIT model of competency to client examples for ethical referral decision making and appraise one’s own level of competence

Workshop Description:

Ask yourself: when was the last time you were in a Sex Ed classroom? As Human Sexuality is often not required for licensure and is not a required college course for your degrees, it may have been high school. Chance are, though, that information is not helping you serve your clients now. Further, a lack of knowledge may be contributing to why so many clinicians are hesitant to discuss sexuality with their clients. This workshop will help you develop a working knowledge of many aspects of human sexuality to help you become more comfortable with this critical aspect of human life. In this workshop, we will fill in the gaps by covering a range of sexuality-related topics to build a strong biopsychosocial foundation of understanding, including how to assess your own competency.

Please note: This workshop will include open and candid discussion of and references to human bodies, anatomical parts, and sexual functioning as well as a frank discussion of the diversity of relational and sexuality diversity.
