Description: Grief, illness (acute and chronic) and sexuality have something in common: Their vulnerable nature of each of them make it extremely challenging to address. When these elements intersect, the challenge is multiplied exponentially. In this training, Kailey Bradley, LPCC-S, counselor and grief specialist, will discuss the necessity for those in helping professions to be able to recognize the distinct nuances involved in working with the intersection of sexuality and grief. She will discuss the role of mental health stigma, challenges relevant to the impact of illness on sexuality, and ways in which sexuality and grief can be addressed from a practitioner-lead perspective.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
1. Participants will be able to understand how mental health field has stigmatized and overlooked the role of both grief and sexuality in psychological functioning
2. Participants will examine challenges that illness and loss pose in sexual functioning
3. Participants will gain a better understanding of how to help clients address, acknowledge, and validate the role of sexuality in their lives throughout illness processes and through the grief process
