Sexual Attitude Reassessment (SAR)
What is a Sexual Attitude Reassessment (SAR)?
Our thoughts and feelings about sex play a huge role in how we approach our clients and the work that we do as sex therapists, not to mention our personal relationships. As a culture, we are exposed to a wide variety of sexual behavior, prejudice, preference, and lifestyle that we are constantly in the process of internalizing and reacting to. A SAR is designed to inundate participants with sexual material in order to bring awareness to areas of discomfort or bias, and through exploration and discussion, ease the participants into a place of greater comfort and confidence in approaching this work with clients and in life.
Guest speakers, experiential exercises, media, and journaling are all included in the SAR experience. The three-day course is not only educational, but emotional as participants connect with parts of themselves that can bring up feelings of vulnerability, in all forms. It is a tremendous experience of learning and growth for therapists, partners, educators, medical professionals or anyone interested in expanding and challenging their sexual self awareness.
August 10-11, 2019 at the South Shore Sexual Health Center in Quincy, MA.
