Take a deep dive into the AASECT Code of Conduct and engage in a lecture, and group discussion, to learn about each of the articles and principles that AASECT sex educators, counselors, and therapists agree to abide by. Participants will have a greater understanding of the AASECT Code of Conduct and how it applies to them professionally. Participants will also spend time discussing ethical dilemmas and how to navigate difficult situations according to the Code of Conduct. This event will meet via Zoom and is worth 3 AASECT continuing education hours.

October 16th-17, This SAR will provide an introduction to the effects of colonization in North America on modern day American human sexuality. This course will explore historically relevant events and trends that created lasting, and at times, detrimental consequences on our sexualities. Together we will examine historical sexual traumas and learn how we as therapist, counselors, and educators, have the potential to uphold harmful hierarchical binarisms through westerncentric cisheteropatriarchal practices. This SAR will cover a variety of sexuality topics from age to disability from a social justice lens, inclusive of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The course will include opportunities for self-exploration of existing messages and beliefs around sexuality, experiential learning activities, group discussions, and critical analysis of some of America’s common and most acceptable sexual practices. It will promote using an antiracist framework and using decolonial practices. This SAR meets requirements for AASECT the impending changes that require it to be 14 hours and include DEI.
