In this workshop, we look at the sexuality of Black women and the myths and archetypes that mislead and misrepresent them. We discuss how the United States’ historical, social, and political systems may have shaped and propagated misconception, misinformation, and misrepresentation of the sexuality and sexual expression of Black women in the sex therapy field. We explore the importance of lifelong learning, institutional accountability, and dismantling power structures when serving this community. Through liberation theory, critical race theory, and critical social theory, we discuss stigmatic barriers, myths, and covert/unseen biases that arise in clinical practice. We identify modalities, and techniques for effective practice. We list thought leaders and current educators in the field for clinical skill acquisition and lifelong learning. This is a workshop that encourages introspective and curious exploration of self.
