Human Sexuality and Social Work Practice 

Online Course
Summer 2016 (May 24 - August 23)

This online course explores human sexuality in social work practice from biopsychosocial, spiritual and political perspectives. This course examines the continuum of gender identity and sexual identity expression, the impact of power on sexuality as it pertains to coercive sexual relationships, and atypical sexual behaviors.

Students will learn how to take sexual health histories across the life cycle, to assess unsafe practices and to formulate respectful and non-judgmental intervention strategies. Students will engage in experiential and discussion-based learning, in and out of the classroom.

The course combines synchronous and asynchronous learning. Students attend fourteen live online class sessions, 90 minutes in length and also complete 80 minutes of asynchronous content prior to each class. Asynchronous content includes lectures from renowned professors who are expert in their field, as well as interactive learning activities offered on a state of the art learning management system.
