Disability and Sexuality

Tuesday, September 17, 2019 5:30PM-8:30PM

Presented by: Stephen Duclos

Sex is so much more than penetration, and yet, as a society we seem to have a very narrow script for what sex is and should be. We believe that a more expansive definition of sex, including a much more lengthy menu of pleasurable sexual behaviors, is necessary and beneficial in working with people of all physical and mental abilities. This course teaches students ways in which we can work with our clients to rewrite their sexual scripts, introduce new or different routes to pleasure, accommodate potential physical factors and obstacles, and move individuals toward the sex they desire.

Sexual Trauma

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 5:30PM-8:30PM

Presented by: Paula Leech

Any degree of sexual trauma can serve to undermine a sense of safety in yourself, your body, your relationships, your sexuality, and the world. The body can become a dangerous place to live, and therefore sex can become confusing or scary, or both. Healing is a process of taking back your needs and desires, learning to articulate and exercise consent on their behalf, and reclaiming your body and sexuality as yours. This course dives into the intricacies of work with sexual trauma, including the introduction of a somatic (body/sensory awareness) approach to treatment.

Sexuality and Spirituality

Tuesday, October 1, 2019 5:30PM-8:30PM

Presented by: Jeremiah Gibson

Some people describe sex as transcendent, an experience that takes them outside of them- selves. With increasing societal exposure to practices such as tantra, the idea of spirituality as an inextricable component of sexuality has become ubiquitous. Some find that connection to be positive and fulfilling, while others find it tied into feelings of shame and guilt due to religious dogma or childhood upbringing. This course explores the spiritual connection with sexuality; how it’s evolved, how to strengthen its presence, and how to heal from spiritual wounds related to sexuality.
