Cultural Implications of Sex, Shame & Vulnerability
A strong therapeutic relationship is a required element for successful therapeutic outcomes. Shame can be a significant and often unnamed barrier to establishing these connections. Learn how to develop strong, trusting relationships by recognizing shame in both yourself and your clients.

This knowledge will be considered as we explore the health care experience of the LGBTQ community. Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of the unique health care needs of this group.

Further, cultural beliefs/traditions regarding sexual expression will be explored from Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and Canadian Indigenous perspectives.

This course is open to all health care professionals – physiotherapists, physiotherapy students, physiotherapy assistants, occupational therapists, chiropractors, naturopathic doctors, massage therapists, registered kinesiologists, medical doctors, nurses and midwives.

Testimonials

The following testimonials were from Your Pelvic Health: A Series of Workshops for Women, presented by Michelle Fraser and Kristen Honey


Such a great introduction to a fundamental part of your body’s system! Kristin and Fraser have a dynamic that translates into an inclusive, comfortable, and fun workshop atmosphere. I loved the movement in the third session!

Kristin and Fraser’s series of pelvic health workshops were both informative and empowering. We approached an area of the body that is often overlooked in other workshops and learned about it not only from a physical perspective, but also from emotional and spiritual viewpoints as well. We learned practical movement and breathing techniques that could be adapted according to personal needs. Kristin and Michelle are highly knowledgeable, approachable and compassionate in their approach to teaching this workshop. By providing a safe space and a relaxed atmosphere participants were able to share their experiences and knowledge with each other. This workshop would be of great benefit not only to those who have had any pelvic health issues, but also to anyone who would like to learn more about this important area of the body and experience greater awareness.

Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world.
Our bodies are fascinating, complex, and always changing.
These two very knowledgeable, wonderful women will encourage you and fill you with an understanding and exploration of your pelvic health in ways you were not aware of. Regardless of your awareness, or knowledge of your body, or the current condition of your pelvic health, I ensure you, that you will leave with insight on an area of the body that isn’t addressed enough.
And if you are apprehensive, please take comfort in knowing that Kristin and Michelle, are very warm, humbling, and welcoming professionals.
I highly recommend and encourage this workshop to all…including men.

X Marks the Spot
The Pelvic Floor Workshop is for women who want to explore where they came from so that they are better able to explore where they are. In a safe and fertile atmosphere of mind and body awareness, I experienced a powerful kindred resonance and for the first time, “pelvic floor love”

I think the workshop series was fantastic and I wish I had had the opportunity to learn about all of this and attend such a workshop when I was younger! It’s so important. I hope to find opportunities to bring the topic up with friends. I cannot imagine where I would be if I had not been introduced to pelvic health physiotherapist by my midwife. Thank you for doing such an important service!!
Very informative workshop, and practical. So much great information! The perfect amount!

Excellent pedagogy!

The Pelvic floor workshop had so many interesting and applicable teaching/learning moments. Personally I found it helpful to be in a group of women sharing their stories, learnings, fears and joys. The material was broad and specific – I have continued with practices developed in the workshop series and expect that I will use many of these new tool/learnings for years to come.
