AASECT Core Courses

The Seattle S.A.R. (Sexual Reassessment Course) 6/24-27/2021

EMAIL [email protected] TO CLAIM & RECEIVE THE COURSE MATERIALS Note: the only required text for this course is Sex Therapy with Erotically Marginalized Clients: Nine Principles of Clinical Support  (also listed on the syllbus, once you purchase course). Please read prior to the course.  SAR is an opportunity for each participant to recognize and critically examine our internalized shame, stigma,  aversion, and joy. Through this process of collaborative reflection, dialogue, and meta-cognition; we can learn to  address the hidden narratives that might guide and/or foreclose our potential personal lives and to minimize  harmful perpetuation of shame and stigma to clients, colleagues, family, and community. Physician, first heal  thyself!   It is important to understand that while as SAR is a required course for AASECT certification; it is the potential first  of many experiential steps along the path of personal and professional exploration that will unfold across one's  lifespan. Presentations encompass media and panels to show the potential range of human sexual expression.  SAR is a highly provocative, experiential, affective experience, designed to push comfort levels, elicit feelings,  and confront attitudes, beliefs, and values about sexuality. The critical examination of one's beliefs and values  has the potential to feel deeply uncomfortable or upset. You will be challenging the world as you know it to exist  by purposefully confronting different worldviews, values, cultures, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities,  socioeconomic status, and social histories from your prior lived experience. We will foster a nurturing space that  encourages the growing process and facilitates support; however, we cannot guarantee that the experience will  feel 'safe' at all times.   The SAR course is not a clinical training in sex therapy, nor is it traditional sex education; rather, the SAR enables participants to move emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, and psychologically into a zone of greater knowing, acceptance, compassion, and understanding of human sexuality in its many possible dimensions and expressions. It reveals biases and blind-spots and produces a more compassionate and informed clinician. This course ought to be required for every healing professional and IS a required course for all three AASECT certifications.  14CEU For those who wish, and opportunity exists to participate in an Advanced SAR Intensive from 4:30-6:30 Thurs-Sat for 6 additional CEU where we will be bringing in nationally recognized speakers who will invite an intimate group of course participants into a reflective discussion about how that day’s topic specifically has and is impacting their personal and professional life.  Because of the intimate nature of this offering, this setting will likely prompt personal, supportive, meaningful, and lasting change.
