Over the last year I’ve developed a variety of trainings for professionals in a number of different settings, from medical practices to higher education to high schools to clinical practices. These are always fantastic sessions, bringing the expertise of the group together with my expertise in teaching the science of sex, to create an inspiring and transformative day. If you’re interested in setting up a professional training for your group or organization, send me an email and I’ll be glad to tell you more!
Pleasure Is the Measure. The science of sexual desire, satisfaction, frustration, communication, and pleasure. In this workshop, therapists learn the science of sexual wellbeing, which dovetails beautifully with their work with both individuals and couples. Variations: 2hr crash course; 4hr info binge; 7hr practicum. 4hr can be approved for 4.5 AASECT CEUs.
FOR MEDICAL PROVIDERS
The science of sexual satisfaction is changing fast, and it has already revolutionized our understanding of even the most basic notions of how human sexuality works. In this workshop, learn about the brain mechanism that governs sexual response and pleasure; the relationship between genital response, desire, and sexual arousal; and the most efficient ways to help a patient improve sexual desire – including Emily’s “silver bullet” answers to those doorknob questions about sexual desire, orgasm, more. You’ll walk away with a more comprehensive and science-based understanding of sexual functioning, and a collection of simple, easy-to-implement ideas for helping patients. Minimum of 40 minutes, comprehensive at 90 minutes.
FOR EDUCATORS – GENERAL
Sex Positive in All Settings. There are two things any educator can do to create a classroom setting – and a world – where our students can begin freeing themselves from destructive cultural narratives around sexuality. Those two things are: some basic facts (none of which are covered in any basic sex ed text) and a calm, nonjudgmental attitude. This workshop teaches teachers both of these, empowering them to debunk myths without ever shaming students or shutting down their curiosity and willingness to learn. Minimum 90 minutes, comprehensive at 3 hours.
FOR SEX EDUCATORS
Come As You Are: Master Class. A workshop designed to dig deep into both the content of COME AS YOU ARE and the strategies that are most effective at teaching that content to a variety of audiences. Topics include: biological homology as social justice; the dual control model; arousal nonconcordance and its place in consent education; responsive desire and the role of pleasure; meta-emotions and nonjudgment; gender and sexual pleasure; effective storytelling, metaphor, and myth-busting; and much, much more. Minimum of 4 hours, but you really get the full effect at 8 hours. You will end the day exhausted, inspired, and loaded with new ideas and activities for expanding sexual pleasure and justice.
