Sexual Harassment Training for Clinicians: Prevention, Ethics, and Ultimately—Solutions

Sexual harassment is the buzzword of our times, yet most professionals have had little or no sexual harassment prevention training or knowledge about  addressing the ethics. This CE program clarifies: (a) interdisciplinary scholarship, i.e., legal, philosophical, psychological, feminist, organizational, and social definitions & perspectives; (b) the history and scope of the problem; (c) the ethics  of pursuing social justice, issues of confidentiality and reporting; (d) the multi-system ramifications, costs, and consequences; (e) fundamentals of clinical treatment for the perpetrator and target; (f) the “workplace prevention” that private practitioners never see; and finally; (g) research-driven solutions, what professionals can do to eradicate sexual harassment.


Illinois born and educated, Linda Freedman earned her professional degrees, an MSW and PhD, at the University of Illinois. She has published under peer review, and presented the findings of her studies at the Council for Social Work Education annual program meeting. She designed and executed a study at the Institute for Clinical Social Work to assess the needs of campus rape survivors, which led to a similar study at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. That work added sexual harassment to a growing list of concerns, so she founded Relationship-Wise, LLC, to pursue social justice and continuing education, “macro-practice.” Linda continues to vet research for the Institutional Review Board at ICSW and is a well-known therapist and popular anonymous blogger in Chicago.
