8/15/24 Connection and Protection

Safer Sex: STIs and Protection. Katherine Yeagel


As hands-on sexual practitioners, our clients look to us as experts on sex and sexual health-- but most sexual healing trainings offer surprisingly little sex education knowledge. And most reliable sexual health information websites (like the CDC) talk about risks exclusively in terms of worst case scenario. After being asked by clients too many sexual health questions I didn't know the answers to and feeling frustrated with the lack of easily accessible harm reduction information, I decided to become a certified sex educator. I condensed what I learned from the San Francisco Sex Information training and my own research into this presentation, designed to equip clients with the essential information they need to make the healthiest choices for themselves.


Working with Attachment in SPT, Andrew Heartman

  • Intro to attachment theory and its relevance for SPT

  • The benefits and potential risks of attachment in SPT

  • Responding to client’s declarations of attachment


Collaborating with Matchmakers, Michal Naisteter

Sometimes, an essential part of the matchmaking process is to help clients develop better relationship and intimacy skills. Michal is a matchmaker who has referred clients to Surrogate Partner Therapy for this purpose. The combination of Matchmaking and SPT seems like “a match made in heaven,” and Michal has a proposal for us.


About the Presenters


This session will go from 3:00 to 5:40 Pacific time, which includes 2.5 hours and allows for a 10-minute break somewhere in the middle, at a time that is appropriate for the material. Then the guest speakers will leave us, and there will be an additional half hour, from 5:40 to 6:10, which will be a facilitated discussion and integration of the prior content. This last half hour is optional, so if you’ve had enough at that point you are welcome to skip it. If you choose to stay, you will be invited to consider questions, either all together or in breakout groups, like “What most impacted you from today’s session?” “How do you think you can incorporate this in your work as a surrogate partner?”
