We are certified by the NY State Dept. of Education to provide CEU credits for Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Mental Health Workers, and Psychoanalysts.
Unfortunately, we had to put our spring workshops on hold due to COVID-19. We have several CEU webinars in the planning stages and look forward to sharing them with colleagues later this year. In the meantime, The SAT Project's Michael Crocker will be presenting at several events. See below for details.
Fixed or Fluid: Gender & Sexuality in Same-Sex Partners
Part of the NYSSCSW's 51st Annual Education Conference - Emerging Voices
PRESENTED SAT, NOVEMBER 7, 2020
REVIEW - EDITED EXCERPT
Michael Crocker’s illuminating and fascinating presentation introduces new ideas and definitions to think about and to apply to clinical work. He believes that a fluid view of sexuality and gender better explains many of the common relationship and individual issues that arise in his work.
Crocker sees the impact of shame, trauma, and stigma in same-sex populations and identifies many defenses this group has developed such as shame about being feminine or masculine, perfectionism, and self-medication. He also finds the fluidity of attachment and affect theory particularly relevant in his clinical work.
[Crocker recommends clinicians] stay away from labels, focus on the clients' experience, follow the affect, and above all, be curious. The complexities of working with same-sex individuals and couples is well documented here and offer us much food for thought in our own clinical work.
