Sex and Sexuality (Masters Level)
This course was designed to assist counselors to feel prepared for the kinds of issues that clients bring to therapy that focus on sex, sexual identity, and sexual experiences. This course explored various approaches to understanding sex and sexuality in the counseling hour. Students discussed and analyzed historical approaches to issues of sexual function, dysfunction, intimacy, and sexual identity in individuals and couples and families (and to some extent societies). We focused on healthy sexuality but also integrate theory and practice around victimization and sex offending. Students examined their own sexual histories and understand their own values, biases and assumptions regarding sexuality and sexual functioning, and the potential impact of these issues on their ability to become effective, compassionate therapists.
Work and Play: Counseling Skills for Life (Undergraduate Level)
This course was designed to facilitate undergraduate students in developing a career path through the process of self-exploration, relationship skills training, and career planning. The course involved activities, lecturing, and discussions that will promote students in making informed choices and decisions related to their career and relationship development.
