Emma Kupferman, LISW, LCSW-C
Course Levels:
3 Hours 15 Minutes



Sexuality is central to human development across the life span, and yet as social workers we are often not trained to talk about sex with our clients. Sexual wellness, or the lack of, can be an enormous source of empowerment or oppression for our clients, and we can be a valuable resource! This training will provide knowledge necessary for social workers in a variety of practice settings to integrate care for behavioral, biological, emotional, intellectual, and social aspects of sexuality. 

This workshop meets the DC Public Health Priorities Requirement.

As a therapist she uses a strengths-based approach to empower clients in creating the change they seek to live their most full, authentic lives. She believes strongly in the power of a therapeutic relationship to promote healing. Since completing her MSW in 2004, her focus has been on trauma recovery for survivors of domestic violence and sexual trauma. In her practice now, she’s interested in working with individuals and couples on body positivity, exploration of polyamory and ethical non-monogamy, challenges with sexual desires and gender identity. She has a long history of working with adolescents and teenagers, including teaching sexual health education, and she’s particularly invested in providing non-judgmental support to young people who are struggling with issues related to their body, gender and/or sexuality.
