Virtual Workshop: Navigating Asexuality in Clinical Practice

Virtual Workshop:

Navigating Asexuality in Clinical Practice

with Dr. Morag A. Yule, C. Psych

 

Wednesday, January 31, 2024; 7:00pm-9:00pm on Zoom

This event will be approved for 2 NYS and 2 AASECT CE credits

Asexuality is characterized by a persistent lack of sexual attraction, and asexuality is often an intrinsic part of an individual’s identity. Asexual people, often referred to as “aces,” may have romantic feelings and the spectrum of asexuality includes various identities and differing levels of interest in sexual activity.

This presentation delves into the understanding and incorporation of asexual identities in clinical practice, aiming to enhance practitioners’ competency in addressing the unique needs of asexual individuals and their partners. It begins by defining asexuality, challenging common misconceptions, and highlighting the diversity within the asexual community. The talk emphasizes the importance of differentiating asexuality from other conditions, such as hypoactive sexual desire disorder, and the implications for misdiagnosis and treatment.

Case studies and interactive discussions will facilitate a deeper understanding of how to support asexual individuals through informed, empathetic, and tailored care. By the end of this session, participants will be equipped with practical tools and insights to navigate asexuality in their clinical work.
