Introduction to Sex Work Affirming Practice

July 15, 2022 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Trainer: Fee: 60 CEUs: 3 (Live Oak is an approved CEU provider for social workers, marriage and family therapists, and clinical counselors through the Illinois Dept. of Financial and Professional Regulation). Location: Zoom

Sex work exists in many forms, and not all people working in the sex trade identify as sex workers. Many of the issues sex workers face in their personal lives are directly related to the stigma surrounding erotic labor in our culture. Stigma affects sex workers at different levels, largely dependent on their other identities and their access to indoor vs. outdoor work. Many sex workers find themselves “closeted” due to the criminalized nature of their work and struggle to find safe spaces to talk and heal. This is even more prevalent after the passing of the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) & the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers (SESTA), as well as in the age of global pandemic. In this training, we will explore how the cultural narratives surrounding sex work and sex workers’ varied identities impact their lived experiences. Together, we will discuss ways to support our clients in the sex trade as they navigate their work, personal relationships, and the complex experiences of stigma and oppression that often accompany criminalized work.
