The Kink Knowledgeable Program is an extensive program designed to incrementally guide participants through the cultural nuances involved in the practice of BDSM from a sex positive psycho-therapeutic perspective. Through a combination of eLearning Education, Coaching, and Clinical Supervision the Kink Knowledgeable training program is designed to customize your learning objectives.

The online eLearning course structure consists of a three-part series of online courses involving over 15 discrete learning classes and related subjects. At the start of your learning journey, you will be required to have an initial orientation consultation with Peter Chirinos and Caroline Shahbaz to establish specific individualized goals and learning objectives.

Part I and II classes are taken as a bloc because they provide foundational competency in kink knowledge. They each include a one (1) hour online mentoring session and participation in a webinar panel discussions involving people who practice BDSM to further discuss BDSM issues.

In Part III, you will be able to pick and choose from classes to deepen your competency. Kink Knowledgeable is committed to providing students with cutting edge material as well as the subject matter evolves. As such, classes will be continuously added in Part III.

In addition to the Online Education, clinicians or students looking for further consultation on individual cases or professional supervision, Kink Knowledgeable offers individual Coaching and Clinical Supervision with subject matter experts and appropriately credentialed faculty.

Kink Knowledgeable is able to provide online classes or in-person workshops for institutions or therapeutic communities. Contact us if your institution or community wants to access Kink Knowledgeable services.
