The Sexology In Practice Symposium (SIPS) is a boutique learning event with a focus on enhancing the practice of professionals working in the area of sexology. SIPS provides the opportunity to come together and exchange ideas, share practice challenges, network and meet new colleagues, and learn from an exciting array of local and international sexology professionals.

This year, SIPS brings together a range of national and international practitioners to share their expertise and wisdom across a wide range of areas. With a focus on improving knowledge and practical skills, these sessions have been grouped into two concurrent streams: Psychosexual Therapy and Sexuality Education. However, all kinds of professionals will benefit from the content, with significant crossover in how we understand issues, educate clients and participants, improve our practice, and contribute to social justice and change. #SIPS2022
