An interview with Andrew Pari, LCSW, a licensed clinical social worker, and psychotherapist. He is also the founder of Sexual Assault Awareness, an organization dedicated to treating and raising awareness of sexualized violence.
I met Andrew earlier this year at the Positive Sexuality Conference in California where he gave a presentation titled Guided Rape Exposure Treatment, A Proposed Model.
Andrew focuses his work on the controversial & taboo topics that most in his field won’t address, including specialized populations in the sex trade and human trafficking.
He is also writing the first book on the arousal experience in sexual assault to help rape victims and therapists understand this response, hence the subject of his conference presentation
As you might expect, given the nature of his work, Andrew and I have a shared interest in discussing the things most people won’t - so who better to interview for this show!
We talk in depth about his professional work but of course, we also get into the intimate nitty gritty of his personal, sexuality as is customary on this show.
