(2) Social Work CEs for this event. I will talk about how abortion was legalized in 1973 with Roe v. Wade. Immediately afterward an extreme opposition movement began organizing to limit access to abortion. Due to these efforts, although abortion is legal, it remains out of reach for millions of Americans. In fact, this assault has increased in recent years with 278 restrictions enacted in the past five years alone. While all of the barriers disproportionately impact low-income people, some target them specifically. The promise of Roe v. Wade was broken for poor women in Pennsylvania when Congress cut federal Medicaid funds for abortions in 1977 through the Hyde amendment. The Pennsylvania General Assembly followed suit with state Medicaid funds in 1985. Women’s Medical Fund was founded that same year. We continue facing barriers to abortion access, including Crisis Pregnancy Centers - fake clinics that try to deter people out of getting an abortion. What's worse - they are funded through tax dollars designated for low-income people! Objectives: By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: 1) Describe the work of Women's Medical Fund and know how to get connected/involved 2) Discuss the Hyde Amendment and local PA abortion restriction 3) Define Crisis Pregnancy Center and associated funding Elicia Gonzales is a queer Latinx, Licensed Social Worker with a Masters in Human Sexuality Education.

Number of hours (CE credits): 2hrs Description: Although the sexual wellbeing of individuals and their partners is the focus of sexuality professionals, experiences of pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period is too often relegated to the medical profession alone. Health and wellness during the perinatal period includes many aspects of sexuality which can be addressed by sexuality education, counseling and therapy. Relationships can be impacted by the introduction of a baby in many ways, and providing supportive and sexuality informed information and counseling can be essential for the health of the entire family system. The nature of western cultures’ response to sexuality and birth, often leaves sexuality providers out of the conversation in regards to parental and infant health. Information about how sex and sexuality interface with the perinatal period can prepare practitioners to alleviate the challenges faced by new parents. The connection between sexuality and the perinatal period, including the emergent understanding of the impact of birth trauma will be examined. Specific examples of interventions and areas which can be addressed with parents will be discussed as it relates to the work of sexuality professionals, those in the field of maternal infant health, and perinatal work. Objectives: Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to: 1. Explain the connection between physiological changes during the perinatal period and sexual health & wellbeing 2. Identify at least two sexuality counseling/education needs which may arise for a couple during the perinatal period 3. Identify at least two strategies which can be utilized to support expectant and new families experiencing symptoms related to a sexual trauma history and/or birth trauma 4. Identify at least two ways that Sexuality Professionals can serve expectant and new families as a career Biography: Shanna M.

Number of hours (CE credits): 2hrs Description: The racist history of sexualized in the U.S. has been well established; so too has the call to address its continued residual effects. In part then, this begs the question: Where do we, as a field, go from here? What does sexuality and, by extension, sexual health—look like in communities when the tactics of anti-Blackness are eliminated, and sexiness is not only affirmed, but actively encouraged and developed in optimal form? This workshop engages the audience in the consideration of an alternate framework for understanding sexuality, which could prove useful in shifting the quality of work we do to a more effective level. (NOTE: This workshop is useful for all sexuality practitioners, though particularly so for individuals who may do direct service with African American and urban Latinx populations.) Objectives: By the end of this session, participants will be able to: 1) Describe at least two key differences between eudaemonic & preventative sexual health discourses, and at least one way that the latter of these disproportionately affects U.S. Black and urban Latinx communities. 2) Identify and explain the 8 sexiness channels of Black Sexual Epistemology. 3) Devise at least two strategies for employing a BSE framework in sexuality education and/or therapeutic practice. Biography: Tracie Q. Gilbert, PhD, (she/they) is a researcher with the Interdisciplinary Sexuality Research Collaborative at Widener University, and an independent educator with her own firm, ThembiAnaiya, LLC. Tracie received her Masters of Science in Education at the University of Pennsylvania in 2009, and her PhD with the Center for Human Sexuality Studies, also at Widener University. Her dissertation was a grounded theory on the lived experience of sexuality among African Americans, from which she created a multi-layered, culturally-centered epistemology model of sexiness development.

Dating and Practicing in a Cultural Fishbowl: Navigating the Ethics of Extra-Analytic Contact and Overlapping Relationships in the LGBTQ+ Community Number of hours (CE credits): 2hrs Description: This presentation examines a moment in which the author encountered a patient on a social media application known for its explicitly romantic and sexual aspirations. Previous psychoanalytic literature on extra-analytic contact, as it has been called, has focused on much more benign moments and, interestingly, has little to say on what happens when these experiences occur in romantic or sexual contexts. Traditional and contemporary perspectives on extra-analytic contact are reviewed for both what they can offer these moments and what has yet to be explored or examined. The presentation will examine the author’s reaction to “unwitting exposure” as a romantic and sexual being and the professional and personal origins of such reactions. Analyst/therapist subjectivity, the experience of identifying with the same cultural minority (specifically LGBTQ+ populations) one works with, and the ethics of the analyst/therapist’s engagement in culturally-specific events and social media apps will be explored and discussed as it relates to participant’s own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors about dealing with such experiences. Objectives: As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to: 1. Differentiate the phenomena of extra-analytic contact, overlapping relationships, and dual relationships 2. Outline traditional and contemporary relational/feminist perspectives on managing experiences with patients outside of treatment 3. Consider proposed recommendations for managing extra-analytic contact and overlapping relationships 4. Analyze their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors about analyst/therapist having a personal life and the potential for extra-analytic contact/overlapping relationships.

He received his Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology and M.Ed. in Human Sexuality from Widener University.
