The Center for Positive Sexuality Presents it’s newest Certification Training webinar:

“Open & Honest Communication”
Postponed – New Date to be Posted Soon

This 3-hr training will cover one of the Eight Dimensions of Positive Sexuality.

We are living in one of the most divisive points in history. Cancel culture, shutting down platforms, and “erasing” people has replaced thoughtful, nuanced discussion rooted in science and understanding. How we speak to and hear each other, whether about sexuality, identity, or our politics, is often more important than what’s being said.

Join us as we explore and discuss what Open & Honest Communication means from a positive sexuality standpoint in this interactive webinar featuring a panel of multi-disciplinary experts, including Talia Sassounes (she/her), Saed D. Hill (he/his), and Rebekah Monroe (she/they). Read more about these amazing people here.

This webinar is open to all and fulfills one of the requirements for the Sex-Positive Professional Certification Program.

We are currently not taking new applications for the Sex Positive Professional Program while we make some revisions and updates to the online course. We will re-open applications March 1, 2022.

We believe that positive sexuality is applicable across all levels of society and can easily be integrated into all professions, especially those that already have an existing code of ethics based on humanity, strengths and well-being, communication, and acting in the best interests of one’s clients. This program is designed to build on your existing knowledge and expertise to enhance your practice, increase your awareness and sensitivity to clients’ needs, and allow for personal growth within your chosen profession.

If you have an existing human sexuality knowledge base, then you can easily move through the online sections that include refreshers on this information, and get on with the discussion and application of the positive sexuality framework. If, however, any of the more introductory information is unfamiliar to you, take your time to learn something new before moving on to the more challenging portions in the course.

This certification training is self-paced, but should take approximately 4-6 months (~150 hours) for full-time working  professionals to complete, depending on how much reading and other assignments you choose to do at a time. This equates to completing approximately 1-2 modules per month. This also depends on the workshops, conferences, and other events you may attend in connection with the Certification Program. Some reading and assignments are required, and others are offered as “extras” for those of you who would like to go further in any particular area.
