CPSY 649 - Sexuality & Gender Issues

Unit(s): 3

This course is designed for counseling and mental health service professionals whose work will bring them into contact with clients experiencing problems and concerns with their sexuality and gender. We will examine the social psychological theories and research on how gender and sexuality shapes self-conceptions and social interactions across many domains. The course is designed to develop: students’ knowledge base related to human sexuality and gender experiences, an understanding of the varied sexuality and gender-related issues which may be encountered in therapy practice, students’ skills in assessment and intervention skills with regard to sexuality and gender-related experiences, and increased awareness of one’s personal perceptions, attitudes in regard to sexuality and gender. Course participants will become more effective in identifying, assessing and intervening with issues related to sexuality and gender. Throughout the course, we will critically analyze the role of power and privilege in human sexuality and gender with an inclusive lens that recognizes the diversity in sexual and gender identities.
