Upcoming CE Events


gender spectrum illustrationNon-Binary Genders and Poly/Kink Communities (2 CEs)

Date: Friday, April 27, 2018

Time: 6-8PM

Location: Tribe Healing Arts Center, 1819-21 W. Belmont Ave. Chicago, IL 60657



Join us at KPACT for an evening of facilitated conversation led by Danielle Carlson, AMFT, and Elizabeth Duke, Psy.D. Presenters will provide a structured format for lively discussion around gender transition and gender fluidity within the populations we serve most. The presentation and discussion will briefly touch on basics such as terminology, best practices and definitions; and focus primarily on relationship dynamics, community shifts and other systemic influences regarding gender and the poly/kink communities.

Course Objectives:

  • Examine the influence of cultural factors on individual perception of gender norms within polyamorous/CNM and kink communities
  • Explore potential relational shifts impacted by gender fluidity and/or transition
  • Develop awareness around the way gender changes impact marginalization within polyamorous/CNM and kink communities/constellations
