Sex Worker Affirmative Therapy (1 AASECT CE)

$30.00Price

1 AASECT CE (57 minutes)

Prior research reported some segments of the sex worker population are at higher risks of negative health outcomes. Historically, these outcomes were viewed as a result of the work itself without taking into consideration the role of the stigma and often criminalization of the work that may be the contributing factors impacting distress. Therefore, drawing upon minority stress theory and affirmative therapy guidelines for the LGBT population, this webinar conceptualizes sex workers’ mental health through a lens of stigma and stigma management. From this conceptualization, the webinar presents competency, assessment, and treatment principles to serve as the basis for sex worker affirmative therapy.

At the end of the webinar you'll be able to:

  • Define proximal and distal stress.

  • Apply the minority stress model to sex workers.

  • Identify ways to increase competency when working with sex workers.
