[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]

Sexual stimulation is a primary reinforcer, yet the discussion of human sexuality and sexual behavior is often overlooked or is a source of discomfort for many. Sexual education is often thought to be the burden of the school system, yet portions of American sex education continue to utilize curricula containing distorted information and basic scientific errors (U. S. House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform, 2004). This lack of affirming sex education has led to a population in which people of all ages may have a deficit in their sexual health knowledge. Because of this, their ability to consensually engage in informed sexual behavior is negatively impacted. This workshop provides a sexual education framework that centers consent, knowledge of the human body, sexual safety, and reinforcement-centric sexuality conceptualization. This workshop will equip attendees with scientifically accurate sexual health information that is affirming of all individuals, and will provide practice opportunities for conceptualizing and tailoring this information in ways which may benefit populations they serve. Empirically supported literature and data will be presented where applicable and available, and audience questions and discussion will be welcomed throughout the workshop.


Learning Objectives:

After attending this event participants will be able to

  • Select several strategies for centering client values in creating goals around health
  • State the key components of consensual sexual behavior
  • Describe the ways in which the human body’s physical characteristics show variability across people
  • Apply strategies to select fact from fiction regarding scientific information on most common fictions specific to sexual health
  • Chronologically list the steps for modeling the use of barriers used in safer sex practices, such as condoms, when utilizing props.
