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.

As one of the key people who started and nurturted the development of the kink community in the Pacific Northwest, Allena Gabosch was an icon. Allena passed away November 25, 2020 but her legacy lives on. In this interview, Dr. Tina Schermer Sellers, ask Allena to recount the stories of the early days, leading to the formation of the Center for Sex Positive Culture, the Pan Eros Foundation, and the Erotic Arts Festival - and what became one of the most active and vibrant kink communities in the country. All the twists, turns, lessons, and revelations are shared, leading to where the CSPC is today.
In this webinar, you will have a rare opportunity to listen to an interview with our founder, Dr. Tina Schermer Sellers and a colleague, Rebecca, who spent part of her career as a sex worker. In this stunning interview we learn about the perspective of someone who chose this work not from a place of coercion, trauma, or desperation, but out of a desire to be a healer. This is not a unique perspective, but it is a vantage point that we often do not hear, assume or welcome. It is a perspective, however, that is important for us to know and understand. It teaches us a lot about grace, healing, and it begs questions about how we as a country need to better handle sex education in order to facilitate sexual healing across this land. For those who wish to earn CEs - 2 AASECT CEs are available. Information is given at the end of the course. A $40 BIPOC Award is available for this course.
