About the event

Course Description:

Somatic sexology is a field that focuses on holistic approaches to sexual education and exploration. Through an intersectional lens, we challenge traditional norms surrounding gender, sexuality and relationship with the aim of celebrating diversity. One important part is the understanding and exploration of somatic awareness and its pivotal role in expanding pleasure and sexual experiences. The starting point for working with challenges in the area of sexology, it is unconditional for us to provide and hold a safe space and positive regard for all clients, regardless of their desires and practices. With explorational exercises and open questions, the participants will get clues in how to deconstruct societal norms and confront biases surrounding gender, sex and sexuality. We briefly cover the historical and cultural specificity of “normal” and will question assumptions that are easily taken for granted. We will raise awareness about the importance of empowerment and inclusivity and give examples on how participants can support developing skills in sexual communication and how to navigate feelings of shame and embarrassment in a professional setting.

By the end of the course, participants will have more critical understanding on the complexities surrounding sexual experiences, being more equipped with other approaches to support individuals on their unique journey navigating sexuality.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe how increased somatic awareness connects clients to their identified needs.
  2. Discuss and reflect on three (3) different ways that empowerment and motivation can be included in our work.
  3. Demonstrate an understanding of how societal norms influence sexuality using Gayle Rubin’s Charmed Circle framework.
  4. Describe common sources of shame related to the individual's challenge areas or presenting concerns.
  5. Discuss three (3) ways to apply exercises based on the understanding of Somatic Sexology.
