EDSE offers a 25-hour certification for anyone looking to jump-start their sex education career, participate in professional development, or become a valuable resource to their community. EDSE welcomes trainees of all experience levels and from any service-centered field, including:
Social services professionals
Non-profit sector professionals
Mental health practitioners
Educators & advocates
Treatment & recovery professionals
Adult industry professionals
This coursework will cover the basics of human sexuality, sexual health, and communication skills in order to provide attendees with a foundational understanding of key topics including:
Sexually transmitted infections: symptoms, treatment & prevention
Harm reduction & risk management
Sexual & reproductive anatomy
Pregnancy & birth control
Communication skills & blocks
Consent & sexual communication
Pleasure-based sex education
Sex toys & pornography
Over the course of two weekends, EDSE attendees will learn key information about human sexuality, intimate health, consent, and communication skills and be trained to respond to sex-related questions in a concise and nonjudgmental manner. Attendees also will leave with new insight into their own sexuality — a fun side effect of sex education training. :)
*Full attendance at both weekends is required for completion of the course.
**EDSE is dedicated to making programming affordable and accessible. Should you require special payment options, please contact us to make arrangements.
