8/22/24 Ethics and Legality, Religious Shame

Ethics and Legality in SPT. Lou Hanson


The ethics and legality in SPT can be viewed in the wider ethics and legality in the field of SPT, as well as in the nuanced decisions we face as Surrogate Partners on a regular basis. 


Whole field ethics will be covered to include history and differentiation across modalities to provide broader context and understanding for how the work is seen through a legal lens.  Trainees will also discuss the current political climate, as well as resources and advocacy opportunities, to frame what it means to be a Surrogate Partner today.  


In addition to understanding our field ethics, trainees will also explore ethical dilemmas that come up regularly in our work, including how to market yourself as an SP, decisions on cost of our services, navigating dilemmas with therapists in the triadic model, and making tough decisions about client boundaries.


Undoing Internalized Religious Shame, FlyDuo®


Join us for a Q&A session with Reuben & Sherri Johnson, affectionately known as the FlyDuo®, as they answer questions about their journey from purity culture to sexual empowerment.

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?”
