Course Description: This course is designed to increase our personal and professional awareness about the topic of human sexuality. This course provides information and perspective to future therapists regarding biological, developmental, behavioral, emotional, and cultural aspects of human sexuality. Appropriate clinical interventions from a systemic perspective will be addressed. Reading materials, classroom experiences and discussions are used to augment student’s knowledge of human sexual functioning, both potential and problematic, and to expand student’s comfort with their future role as therapists to couples and individuals. Students will be encouraged to explore their own sexual history and how it affects their ability to form therapeutic relationships. In addition, there will be many opportunities for students to confront and share their attitudes, thoughts and values as related to human sexuality. The content of this course is, of course, provocative. We will need to conduct ourselves with poise and respectful confidence as we research and investigate the nuances of sexual interaction. Please note: there will be sexually explicit material/film shown in this class! Goals and Objectives: Personal and Professional Growth: Develop an awareness of the impact of sexual issues on clients and their relationships.

Professional Knowledge, Skills, and Strategies: Enhance conceptualization skills of sexual issues operating in families. Enhance skills in the application of concept to therapeutic situations and interventions. Enhance your understanding of the role of sex in emotionally committed relationships.

There will be discussion groups and in a small way, your grade depends upon you having a dialogue with the rest of your group. There is absolutely no substitute for the classroom experience. When you miss class, you miss class material, which cannot be had except by being in class. Therefore, your final grade may be affected by your absences. Please do not use your cell phone in class. If you need to use it, please step outside of the classroom. UNR’s Policy on Academic Dishonesty: Anyone caught cheating, in any way, as defined by the University code – whether confronted during the act, through comparative analysis or acquired evidence, will be automatically dismissed from the course and given a course letter grade of an “F”. If the infraction is considered severe, action may also be taken at the university level. A Note on Plagiarism: Plagiarism (copying all or part of someone else's work and passing it off as your own) is a serious form of academic misconduct and will not be tolerated in this class. The following definitions and possible courses of action are taken from the Academic Standards section of the university catalog: Academic dishonesty is defined as: cheating, plagiarism or otherwise obtaining grades under false pretenses. Plagiarism is defined as submitting the language, ideas, thoughts or work of another as one's own; or assisting in the act of plagiarism by allowing one's work to be used in this fashion. Disciplinary procedures for incidents of academic dishonesty may involve both academic action and administrative action for behavior against the campus regulations of student conduct. "The work of another" does not just mean whole papers or articles copied from another source. It includes any information, ideas, sentences, or phrases that came from somewhere other than your own head (i.e. books, articles, internet sites, videos, documents, lecture notes or handouts from other courses, and any other sources used in your paper). These must be properly acknowledged by providing references either in the text or in a footnote, along with a bibliography giving the complete publication information for all sources used in your paper. Even if you paraphrase someone else's ideas and do not quote them directly, you still must acknowledge your source. Citations should also be given for little known facts and statistics. Ignorance is not an excuse for plagiarism. If you are not sure whether you need to provide a source for a piece of information or how to cite a source, ask me. Audio/Video Recording Classes: Surreptitious or covert videotaping of class or unauthorized audio recording of class is prohibited by law and by Board of Regents policy. This class may be videotaped or audio recorded only with the written permission of the instructor. In order to accommodate students with disabilities, some students may have been given permission 4 to record class lectures and discussions. Therefore, students should understand that their comments during class may be recorded. Academic Success Services: Your student fees cover usage of the Math Center (784-4433 or www.unr.edu/mathcenter/), Tutoring Center (784-6801 or www.unr.edu/tutoring/) and University Writing Center (784-6030 or www.unr.edu/writing_center/. These centers support your classroom learning; it is your responsibility to take advantage of their services. Keep in mind that seeking help outside of class is the sign of a responsible and successful student. If I ask you to seek help at the writing center, I expect you to do so. Accommodations for Student Disabilities: If you have a special need due to a disability (physical, learning, psychological), please be sure to let me know as soon as possible. Please coordinate with the Disability Resource Center and/or Counseling Services to get the assistance and documentation you need.

We need to know which classes you are missing. Again, you are responsible for any materials, information, or assignments that you miss. There will be no late assignments or make-up tests. This means you will need to turn in assignments ahead of time if necessary. 5 Assignments If your paper is full of grammar, spelling syntax, and APA errors it will not be graded. Your paper will be handed back to you with the option of re-doing it and making the suggested the corrections. You will not lose points for re-doing the paper; you will lose points for not making the corrections. I am also more than happy to meet before class to answer any questions that you may have!!! Participation: 100 points: A total of 100 points are possible for participation in class sessions. At the end of each class, you will turn in a 3 x 5 index card (which I supply) with your name, date, and you may be asked what you took away from the class or 2 questions you had based upon what you heard in class. Sometimes, you will be asked to rate each of your group member’s participation. These will be counted and used for class attendance. They will be reviewed and you will get either a “+” or a “-“. Class Material Reaction Papers 10 @ 10 points each = 100 points total At the beginning of every class, you will need to turn in a 1-2 page typed and doublespaced reaction paper on the material we covered in the class the day before. Please DO NOT summarize what we covered in class. I am looking for how the material affected you on an emotional level and how or why you believe it is important in our profession. I HIGHLY suggest that you look at page 16 “processing questions” at the end of this syllabus to help you write these papers. On June 5th you have the opportunity to earn 10 extra credit points through handing in a 1-2 page paper that discusses your overall thoughts about the course. **If you cite any of the readings or other materials, follow APA guidelines. Chapter Presentation: 50 points Each student in this course will be responsible for giving a power point presentation on his/her assigned chapter from the textbook Kelinplatz, P. J. (Ed.). (2012). New directions in sex therapy: Innovations and alternatives (2nd ed.). New York, NY: Routledge Taylor & Francis Group. Please see the attached schedule for your presentation date and the grading rubric for further details. Hint: make sure that you meet the criteria listed under each category on the rubric while preparing your presentation!! Shame Assignment: 100 points due June 2 1) On May 29th, Dr. Kitty Unthank will be joining us. Her lecture will cover one of the most common emotions associated with sex: shame. 2) We will then watch the movie "Shame" for the rest of the class period. http://www.foxsearchlight.com/trailer/148/trailer/ "Brandon (Michael Fassbender) is a New Yorker who shuns intimacy with women but feeds his desires with a compulsive addiction to sex. When his wayward younger sister 6 (Carey Mulligan) moves into his apartment stirring memories of their shared painful past, Brandon's insular life spirals out of control." 3) Be sure to do the readings listed for May 28/29. You will analyze the main character of the movie, "Shame" through the readings. We will discuss this assignment in more detail on May 28, where you will be given detailed instructions and a grading rubric. 4) Follow the APA guidelines for this assignment. The Sexual Genogram: 100 points due June 4 First, read the following journal articles, which are listed under the May 20 readings: Bowen Family Systems Therapy and Revisiting the Sexual Genogram Completing a sexual genogram (Hof & Berman, 1986; Berman & Hof, 1987) is useful in exploring intergenerational themes, patterns, and events that may have affected a person’s sexuality. The basic structure of the genogram remains the same (McGoldrick, Gerson, & Shellenberger, 1999), but the focus of the information is on identifying the following information: people who were either sex-positive or sex-negative; people who talked to you about sex; who in your family is heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual; sexual secrets that have been kept in the past or are currently being kept; miscarriages or abortions; and any other critical events related to sexuality (e.g., rape, sexual abuse, trauma, addiction). Once this information is collected, careful reflection on how this has affected your thoughts and feelings about sexuality helps to understand where your strengths and challenges may be. 1.Construct a skeletal structure of your Sexual Genogram including the basic components of your family and relational system (refer to above readings). 2.Answer the reflection questions in appendix B listed in Revisiting the Sexual Genogram (you do not have to turn these in). Add the sexuality information to your genogram. 3.Process your resulting diagram; it’s meaning, and its impact on your life thus far. Additionally, answer the following questions: 4.Would you consider your family to be "sex positive," "sex negative," or "sex neutral?" How does your answer affect your sexuality today? 5a. Differentiation: read about it here http://www.thebowencenter.org/pages/conceptds.htmland we will discuss this question in class more. 5b.Are there any members of your extended family whom you are cut off, and if so, is this situation part of a triangle? 6. If you cite any of the readings or other materials, follow APA guidelines. 7 Erotic Mind Journal 100 points due June 5 “Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.” ~ Carl Jung As future therapists, you will be expected to be comfortable speaking with your clients about their sexuality. Awareness of your own sexuality is vital - what are your biases, judgments, and values? If you are not comfortable discussing your own sexuality, is it possible to have a comfortable conversation with your client about theirs? Jack Morin wrote The Erotic Mind in order for people to explore these very issues. Jack Morin compassionately invites you readers to explore your erotic side, and offers non-judgmental support page after page. In order to fully experience what this book has to offer, Morin asks you to keep an erotic journal (please refer to page 25 in the book to get started on the journal). He poses questions throughout the book that will challenge you to delve deep inside your mind; to remember your own peak erotic experiences. Please answer his questions in your journal every time that you read one. A Sexual Excitement Survey, developed by Morin himself, asks numerous questions regarding these experiences. The survey sets the stage, as you can look back at their answers and recognize recurring themes or patterns in your erotic mind. I am NOT collecting your journals. I would like you to bring your journal to class on June 6th and just show me that you actually did it. Remember, you will only get out as much as you put in to this.
