I’m teaching a workshop next week as part of the San Francisco Sex Information Continuing Education program. I’d love to see you there!
Understanding Sex & Shame
Tuesday, August 17th, 7-8:30 pm
Audre Lorde room, Women’s Building, SF, 3543 18th Street, San Francisco, CA
$15 or $5 for current San Francisco Sex Information volunteers
Sexual shame is one of the biggest challenges that sexuality educators face. The more we understand about how it works, the easier it is to develop strategies for responding to sexual shame. Charlie Glickman PhD will discuss the roots of shame, how it can both serve and hinder us, the ways that shame is used to reinforce social rules, and the differences between toxic shame and pro-social shame. As a group, we will discuss the tools that sexuality educators can use to bring compassion, understanding and healing to people working through sexual shame.
Objectives: By the end of this session, you will be able to:
- Describe two ways that shame is used to enforce social rules
- Identify two ways that sexuality educators can help people heal from shame
