Advances in Research
and Clinical Practice
Since 2008, CARAS has partnered with a variety of organizations to host the Alternative Sexualities Conference, now titled Multiplicity of the Erotic (MOTE): Advances in Research and Clinical Practice.
MOTE is a scientific conference that offers a unique opportunity for cutting edge researchers and healthcare professionals with special interests in the edges of sexual expression to gather together to present, discuss, and connect.
We could not have done our past conferences without many partners including the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Projects Advancing Sexual Diversity, The Alternative Sexualities Health Research Alliance, and the Sexual Orientation and Gender Institute of the Center on Halsted.
We have exciting new partnerships forming for the 2021 conference, that we hope to hold in the later spring 2020. Please stop back as we plan out our upcoming 2021 conference
