Jennifer Briggs, LMSW (from AMPLIFY Tulsa)
Holistic sexuality includes the entire person, not just one aspect. Our sexuality includes how we think and feel about ourselves and our bodies, who we are attracted to, who we are, and our sexual and reproductive anatomy. This session utilizes an adapted version of the Circles of Sexuality model developed by Dr. Dennis Daley to explore 6 dimensions of human sexuality: Sensuality, Intimacy, Sexual Identity, Sexual Health & Reproduction, Sexual Power over Others, with the added circle representing Values, Agency & Power. Participants learn about each of the 6 circles, their overlapping nature, and then apply the model through a youth-centered lens.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
- Identify the 6 circles of holistic sexuality.
- Explain that sexuality is a highly individualized life-long experience that is different for everyone, and encompasses far more than sexual behavior alone.
- Identify at least (3) ways the model can be applied to understanding sexual experiences, particularly for young people.
Participation is free with registration in advance.
