Ask yourself: when was the last time you were in a Sex Ed classroom? As Human Sexuality is often not required for licensure and is not a required college course for your degrees, it may have been high school. Chance are, though, that information is not helping you serve your clients now. Further, a lack of knowledge may be contributing to why so many clinicians are hesitant to discuss sexuality with their clients. This workshop will help you develop a working knowledge of many aspects of human sexuality to help you become more comfortable with this critical aspect of human life. In this workshop, we will fill in the gaps by covering a range of sexuality-related topics to build a strong biopsychosocial foundation of understanding, including how to assess your own competency.
Please note: This workshop will include open and candid discussion of and references to human bodies, anatomical parts, and sexual functioning as well as a frank discussion of the diversity of relational and sexuality diversity.
