Sexuality and Spirituality

School of Professional Psychology and Health ICPW 5311 1.00

This course honors the sacredness of sexual, creative energy and explores a wide range of sexual expressions, behaviors, and concerns. The intent is to provide an overview of the subjects of adult human sexuality, sexual development, and sexuality and spirituality, in addition to current trends in sex therapy. The class is designed to assist student therapists to get in touch with themselves in order to facilitate the sexual health of their clients. Through lecture, video, discussion, and experiential exercises, students will gain a basic understanding of sexuality. The topics of sexual physiology, social and multicultural issues associated with sexual identity, and behaviors and sexual disorders will be discussed. A primary focus of the class, sexuality and spirituality, will be explored. (This course meets and exceeds the requirement for 10 hours of training in human sexuality for California BBS licensure.)
