05/28/2020 06:30 PM - 07:30 PM ET


Sexuality is much more than sexual feelings or sexual intercourse; it encompasses nearly every aspect of our being from attitudes and values to feelings and experiences. Sexuality is influenced by the individual, family, culture, religion/spirituality, laws, professions, institutions, science and politics. This presentation will walk through the circles of sexuality and provide social workers with ideas for how to implement this framework into their practice.
