Clinical Foundations: Relationship Therapy Refresher

This course looks at the ever-evolving world of relationships from outdated language to the need for cultural curiosity outside of heteronormative culture. This conversation is crucial to be having during this time as relationships can be more than two people and the topic is growing in complexity. Clinicians will learn about how to address relational problems and intimacy details in a thorough, responsive manner.

You will be able to:

  • Identify the components of a healthy relationship.

  • Develop skills and knowledge about the queer and trans community when it comes to relationships.

  • Analyze the multi-systemic barriers to education about relationships and diversity in sexuality and intimacy.

  • Give examples of inclusive language to use when conducting relationship therapy.

To quote Salt-N-Pepa, “Let’s talk about sex, baby. Let’s talk about you and me. Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be.”

Dr. Mary Nedela, Dr. Letitia Browne-James, and Rachel McCrickard, break down the concepts of relationship therapy: what language to use, things to look out for, and how to treat different populations through a lens of cultural humility. Dr. Nedela explains the fluidity and openness in the queer and trans community and shares resources to help understand the unique facets and norms in relationships.

This course dives into the ever-evolving world of relationships and the barriers of understanding the access to proper education about the topic.
