As part of the Talking About Sexual Wellness Project we are hosting three on-line workshops to develop competencies for Therapeutic Radiographers in talking about sexual pleasure. In these workshops we will explore sexual wellness through interactive activities and discussion prompts as part of the ‘Gynae Narratives’ research project. We will introduce you to the stories and experiences of cancer treatment, and encourage sharing and reflections amongst practitioners to bring about developments in your practice. Our aim is to enable you to increase your awareness, skills and confidence in discussing sex, sexual wellness and sexual pleasure as part of your professional relationships with those undergoing gynaecological cancer treatment. We will create a supportive network of peers and provide you with insight and expertise from our own research and practice, as well as signposting recommended sources of further information.
The dates of the workshops are:
- Monday 20th June, 16:00-18:30
- Tuesday 28th June, 16:00-18:30
- Tuesday 5th July, 16:00-18.30
Registration for these workshops has now ended
The workshops will be held via Zoom. It is important that you can make all three dates. If you cannot make all the dates but would like to remain involved, please let us know.
Should you be able to attend, you will be sent joining instructions and a workshop pack in the post. This will include materials for the workshops.
A participant information sheet is included below, along with a copy of the consent form relating to how we will collect and use data during the workshops.
We have some bursaries available to cover costs incurred by taking part. These can be used to cover child care or support with joining on-line, for example data extensions if you do not have access to internet services.
Since 2008 Me&Her have worked in sexual health clinics, women’s and LGBT+ centres, and conducted gender and sexualities research. During all of this these two sex critical feminists have constantly talked about sex and pleasure and they also get to do it sometimes too. Motivated by a desire to challenge typical assumptions about sexual lives, experiences and pleasure, for the last decade they have delivered workshops across the UK and internationally involving fun and interactive ways to explore themes surrounding women’s sex lives.
