Summer Course at Wheaton

This next week I’ll be at Wheaton College to teach their graduate human sexuality course titled Sexuality & Sex Therapy. It is similar to the summer course I teach at Regent. We open with a discussion of theological considerations in approaching the topic of human sexuality and then move into sociocultural perspectives. We then discuss relevant biological issues and then turn to clinical perspectives on addressing sexuality as mental health professionals. The remainder of the course is on learning about specific sexual issues, such as sexual dysfunctions (e.g., desire disorders), paraphilias and paraphilic-related disorders, gender identity concerns, and sexual identity concerns. Students read some of the leading secular theorists, clinicians, and researchers; the primary integration readings come from Lisa McMinn’s book, Sexuality and Holy Longing.
