Learn and Connect

KPACT events are open to professionals and students who share a desire to deepen their understanding of issues facing people who practice kink, BDSM, and/or non-monogamy. Events are also a way to connect with like-minded clinicians and peers. 

KPACT events are appropriate for psychologists, social workers, counselors, sex therapists and educators, psychiatrists and other healthcare professionals. KPACT educational events offer continuing education units (CEs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do KPACT registration fees go?
  • To compensate KPACT presenters, as well as fund the behind-the-scenes efforts that go into maintaining the KPACT community, we invite you to contribute monetarily for trainings and presentations. 
  • To ensure that these educational opportunities are as accessible as possible, we have created a sliding scale which, we hope, will allow everyone to contribute in a meaningful way. 
  • In order to keep costs down, CE fees are non-refundable unless otherwise stated.
How do continuing education credits work?

KPACT educational events offer continuing education units (CEs) in Illinois. CE fees are nonrefundable and are generally available to psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other licensed psychotherapy practitioners. KPACT courses are sponsored by LifeWorks Psychotherapy Center. LifeWorks maintains responsibility for KPACT programs and their content. In order to receive CEs, attendees must complete the survey distributed during the event within seven days of the event. 

Will events be accessible?

Please send any accommodation requests to us at least one month prior to the event. Feel free to send requests closer to the event date, but please understand that we may not be able to fulfill requests with less than one month’s notice.
