Undressing Issues in Sexuality in Contemporary Couple & Family Therapy" is held in collaboration with the McGill University School of Social Work and the Couple and Family Therapy Program, with the support of the International Family Therapy Association (IFTA).

Panelists will be discussing relevant issues of developing sexuality within a couple and family context. Our renowned keynote speaker Dr. Peggy Kleinpatz will be exploring sexuality and development and its relevance to examining it in therapy. In addition to Dr. Kleinpatz we have Carm De Santis, who will be discussing sexual literacy: what we really mean when referring to sex, and how our references as clinicians are impacted by our own values, experiences, and level of comfort. Finally, we have Dr. Michael Berry, Bill Ryan and Dr. Shuvo Ghosh who will be presenting both their research and clinical experience. Each speaker will provide insights into their clinical practice and how they provide optimal therapeutic intervention with their clients. The speakers will also explore challenges clinicians face when talking about sexuality and how to overcome such issues within the context of couple and family therapy. 

The target audience will be made up of mental health professionals who work with individuals, couples and families and are interested in deepening their understanding and comfort in working through sexually related themes.

The overall objectives of this symposium are:

-To share research and clinical experience/ expertise relating to sex, sexuality and sexual development within the context of couples and family therapy.

-To address the possible concerns and challenges of the individual and family members related to sex, sexuality and sexual development within the context of couples and family therapy.
