Is Bisexuality Real? - Details:
Bisexuality can be misunderstood by both gays (who sometimes perceive bisexuals as trying to maintain heterosexual privileges by keeping one foot in that world) and straights (who often view bisexuals as postponing coming out as gay). Numerous, contradictory research studies and theories about the prevalence, definition, and even the existence of bisexuality only add to the confusion. This workshop will help you understand bisexual orientation, including the contrasts between male and female bisexuality. You'll learn what differentiates sexual orientation from sexual fantasies and sexual behaviors, and how to assess whether someone is bisexual or is using the label as a bridge to coming out as gay or lesbian. You'll leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of how to guide your clients through bisexual and other sexual-identity issues.
