Sexuality Issues for Religious Professionals Online Course
The Sexuality Issues for Religious Professionals course is an online, self-guided graduate-level course. The course covers such sexuality-related topics as understanding one’s personal values and history, components of sexual identity, sexual development, life behaviors of a sexually healthy adult, dealing with attraction and boundaries, pastoral care, safe congregation policies, sexuality education, and worship in the context of ministry.
The course was developed for Unitarian Universalist religious professionals, so three of the eleven units contain material specific to UU’s, but the majority of the course would be of great benefit to any religious professional who would like to become more sexually healthy and responsible. This course partially fulfills the sexuality education, health, and justice competency for UU candidates for ministry.
The course is being updated during the summer of 2013. A session of the revised course is planned for October of 2013.
