Sex-Positive Sexual Assault Work
1pm – 4pm (in-person and virtual options for attendance)

Many of us understand when a survivor of sexual assault copes by avoiding sex—are we as understanding if survivors cope instead by seeking out sex at increased levels? What if a survivor seeks “risky” sexual encounters—should we have a clinical goal of changing this coping skill? Is it “healthy” if a client decides they never want to engage in sex again? Led by a clinician with OAG training working with sexual assault survivors and a certificate in sex therapy, we will discuss and define what it means to be a sex-positive therapist working with sexual assault survivors, as well as examine how our own values around sex and trauma may impact how we interact with these issues.

Grief and the Therapist: Managing Unexpected Client Death
9am – 12pm (in-person and virtual options for attendance)

There is nothing quite like the death of a client to really highlight the paradox of intimacy and professional distance in the therapeutic relationship. Most clinicians are ill-prepared for the unexpected death of a client. Join OKSRI for an interactive discussion of grief and the unexpected death of a client. Dr. Stevens will review the literature, explore avenues for preparation, identify and discuss the legal and ethical considerations, and lastly, provide suggestions and interventions for coping. While one cannot completely prepare themselves for the death of a client that is truly unexpected, clinicians can begin to confront their own values/beliefs and experiences related to death as a means to better serve themselves and their clients.

The Golden Oldies and a Little Afternoon Delight
9am – 12pm (in-person and virtual options for attendance)

Getting older does not mean we stop wanting to ‘get it on’; in fact, many people continue to have active sex lives well into their 60s, 70s, and 80s. Society tends to label older adults as ‘asexual’ or ‘just not interested’; at worst, society associates senior sex with disgust and/or perversion. Our bodies may not function the same in our 70s as they do in our 20s, but it does not mean that sexual intimacy and experience are any less important and/or fulfilling. Please join Dr. Tori Stevens to learn more about how to help clients navigate their changing bodies, sexuality, and factors that are unique to older adults who are still enjoying sexual experiences.

“What Do You Do for Fun?”: The Importance of Prioritizing Pleasure
1pm – 4pm (in-person and virtual options for attendance)

Have you ever been asked the question “What do you do for fun?” and found yourself without an answer? In a culture that has a tendency to encourage us all to turn our hobbies into side hustles, how do we find and prioritize pleasure for the simple sake of having it? And what is important about doing so? Let’s talk about it! And how helping our clients find pleasure may be just (or more than!) important as reducing their hurt.
