Sexual Attitude Reassessment (SAR) Training
SASHA in collaboration with Dr Celina Criss from SexCoachU and Dr Agata Loewe from the Sex Positive Institute are offering a Virtual SAR opportunity as part of the SASHA Conference for SASHA members and Non-SASHA Members who are registered professionals during the weekend of 29 – 30 October 2022.
What is a SAR and Why Do a SAR?
SAR stands for Sexual Attitude Reassessment and Restructuring. It is an experiential training event is internationally recognised as the essential personal and professional experience that explores and challenges the sexual values, attitudes, feelings, and beliefs of sexual health, sexual wellbeing and sexuality education professionals through a range of evocative and reflective experiences such as engaging ethically produced and consent informed explicit media, guest speakers sharing lived experiences, small group processing sessions, reflective journaling, and large group interactions.
A SAR is situated within a sex-positive paradigm and built on the values of inclusivity, respecting, and valuing diversity, non-judgement, and general ethical principles.
This is informed by the aim of developing participants’ sensitivity, knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the diversity and complexity of human sexuality and sexual expression. The nature of the activities is intended to be evocative and to bring into awareness participants’ gaps in knowledge, their edges, their boundaries and participant’s comforts and discomforts in relation to the diversity of human sexuality and sexual expression. Thus, allowing for participants to learn more about themselves, work with the realisations, discoveries, and new insights for themselves personally and professionally.
For many international programmes in sexology, sex therapy, sexuality education and sex coaching the completion of a SAR experiential training is set as a pre-requisite for seeking accreditation and licensing. It is also an experiential training event highly recommended for all medical, psychosocial and allied health professionals.
A SAR offers a unique opportunity that opens up and empowers professionals across the biopsychosocial spectrum to offer better quality care when it comes to sexual health and wellbeing.
