“BDSM…Pathology or Pacification?”
This workshop is intended to serve as a clinician’s primer on the subject of BDSM. What is it? Is it pathological? Am I qualified as a counselor to see clients presenting with issues related to their BDSM practice? Participants will learn there is much more to BDSM than Fifty Shades of Grey.
- Following this presentation, participants will be able to differentiate BDSM as a “pathology” versus a “pacification.”
- Following this presentation, participants will be able to identify three or more common psychological characteristics of BDSM practitioners.
- Following this presentation, participants will be able to understand the potential of BDSM practice as a harm reduction activity for certain clients.
