Substance Abuse and Sexuality

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 5:30PM-8:30PM

Presented by: Stephen Duclos

Substance abuse can have a profound impact on one’s relationship to their body and bodily sensations. This course looks at the consequences, both short and long term, of substance abuse on one’s sexuality and sexual functioning, as well as examining the implications for more positive treatment modalities for therapeutic substance abuse treatment that does not exclude sexuality.

This course meets the requirements of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and is approved for 3 CE credits.

Diversity and Lifestyle: BDSM and Kink and Everything Else

Tuesday, September 3, 2019 5:30PM-8:30PM

Presented by Joseph Winn

There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to sex. What may sound thrilling and edgy for one individual or couple, can feel repulsive and scary to another. The same goes for how we organize our relationship or relationships. We will explore the many subcultures that exist in the sexuality community, the various forms of open relationships (polyamorous, swinging), and the means of working with these populations in a way that feels informed and open.

This course meets the requirements of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and is approved for 3 CE credits. 

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.

This course meets the requirements of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and is approved for 3 CE credits.
