ADHD After Dark: Better Sex Life, Better RelationshipDate : 8/14/19, 4PM EST-5:30 PM ESTPresenter : Ari Tuckman, PsyD, CSTAdults with ADHD (often undiagnosed and untreated) are over-represented in therapy offices because of its many effects on relationship functioning and daily life. This session will be based on the results of the first significant research into how ADHD affects couples’ sexual functioning and satisfaction to help clinicians work more effectively with these clients. Given the additional daily struggles, couples where one partner has ADHD can benefit all the more from the positive effects of good sexual connection on overall relationship satisfaction.

Kink and TraumaDate : 7/25/2019 4 PM EST - 5:30 PM ESTPresenter : Samantha Manewitz, LICSW CSTThe intersection of kink and trauma, especially sexual trauma, is all to often a source of stigma, both within and outside of kink communities. And yet, many kinky people have trauma histories to reckon with. In fact, many survivors look to BDSM as a source of trauma healing, a practice that garners even more controversy within kink communities. While it is true that, in some cases, is that kinky play can sometimes be an unhealthy rehashing of abusive dynamics, it is not unusual for some survivors to find trauma healing through kink. This phenomenon isn’t as strange as one might think. While kink isn’t necessarily a replacement for trauma informed therapy, the frameworks of BDSM play can actually replicate mechanisms of evidence based trauma work, given the right circumstances. Drawing from research on effective trauma work and evidence based practices, this workshop dispels harmful myths about the intersections of kink and trauma, and examines not only how survivors can have a healthy relationship to BDSM, but also can find profound healing through kink.
