S31 SWDP 5153Sexual Health Across the Life Course3.0 Units
Description:Some people are destined to thrive, some to languish, and some to die young. A seldom-considered pathway for inequity that occurs across one's life and that influences the length of one's life---a focus of this course-is sexual health. Sexual health is a source of energy, happiness and empowerment and contributes to total wellness. Because sexual health is unevenly distributed in most societies, this course will examine how social structures as well as individuals' choices shape sexual health. Members of different populations experience disparate opportunities for positive sexual development, freedom to express their sexuality, satisfying sexual experiences and sexual and reproductive health care. Sexually transmitted infections, sexual violence, and sexual dysfunction disproportionately expose members of marginalized groups to greater risks for sexual harm and deprivation. Opportunities for sexual pleasure and satisfaction correlate with status and privilege. This course will examine sexual health and sexual health disparities across the life course. Using intersectionality as a lens, we will trace sexual development through infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and late adulthood, addressing strengths and threats at each stage of life. Students in this course are expected to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values needed to design and implement holistic, pleasure-oriented sexuality education interventions at micro, mezzo, and macro levels. Speaking and writing comfortably, knowledgeably, and authoritatively about sexuality and using a variety of disciplinary languages to do so are critical to practitioners addressing sexual health issues. Dialogue and coaching skills, narrative approaches, bibliotherapy and motivational interviewing will be studied and practiced throughout this course as they relate to sexuality education, therapy, health promotion, advocacy, and policy work. This course is appropriate for social work and public health students either specializing in sexuality education and health, planning to be therapists, advocacy and/or policy makers. It is also appropriate for students wanting to integrate sexual health models into their work in any of our school's social work/public health concentrations.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
