When World Views Collide: How to Understand and Talk with Adversaries
Description: Sexuality educators, counselors and therapists need to respond well and tactfully to those who dislike what (they think) we do, and who disagree with the sexuality rights we promote. During this workshop we will learn and talk together about the origins of differing sexual ethics and how to navigate these encounters. We will discuss how people arrive at the positions they do, and why it is so hard for them to change their beliefs and opinions about positive sexuality.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: identify the origin of taboo behaviors; articulate why there is so much push-back to sex positive information; describe and formulate at least three ways to converse with a sex negative person.
