Descriptions of Some Workshops:
Love My Body – How Do I Do That? We hear the message “Love Your Body,” but what does that really mean and how can we do that? Body image is a very complicated topic to address. This interactive lecture explores media depictions of bodies and the consumer culture around that, as well as gender socialization, components of body-image, what we can do to support each other. Dr. Jenn teaches practical skills to build a strong foundation for self-love physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. The focus is on women’s bodies, but the messages and skills are relevant to all.
How a "Good Girl" Became a Sex Therapist. Girls and young women receive many conflicting messages: Be a good girl. Boys will only like you if you put out. Show off your body to get attention and worth. Don't be a slut. It can be difficult for young women to negotiate what they do and don't want, and to be able to voice that in a healthy way. This interactive lecture delves into the power that young women have and how they can make choices that honor their bodies, health, feelings, and future. Dr. Jenn leads the audience through her personal life story and weaves in three key life lessons for happiness, sexual awareness, and personal growth. Participants will leave feeling validated, entertained, and empowered.
Sexual Health in the 21st Century. What does it mean to live a sexually healthy life? This interactive lecture delves into the physical aspects of STDs/STIs and what is most important to know about symptoms and risk factors. Then the program explores the “bigger picture” around sex and sexuality, including the varied reasons why people have sex, fears around sex, safer sex ideas, and sexual fun facts to keep things light and fun! Way beyond the physical aspects of sexual health, this lecture explores the mental, emotional, social, and spiritual components that get to the heart of sexual health.
Erotic Play: Making Intimacy Fun & Sexy. Exploring our erotic sides requires being creative, authentic, and open to intimacy. This lecture brings this playful and creative perspective to eroticism and engages students to think outside the box. Topics covered include using the senses in play, sex toys and lubricants, safety, mental stimulation, emotional releasing, and mindful presence. A fun, lively, and memorable discussion!
Your Sex Questions Answered. In a culture of discomfort with honest discussions around sex, and a predilection for abstinence-only education in high schools, there are many myths and misconceptions for college students around sex, gender differences, and body parts and functions. This lecture is an open discussion where basic misconceptions will be addressed and then participants can anonymously submit questions and have their personal questions and concerns addressed.
Using "Happiness" to Enhance Your Intimate Life! Is striving for "happiness" a frivolous pastime, or a path to fulfillment? This interactive lecture is based on recent positive psychology research and the science of happiness. Dr. Jenn teaches how improving optimism, through simple evey day activities, can enhance one's relationships, self-esteem, creativity, and life satisfaction. Practical tips for infusing positivity into every day life will be practiced and learned, so everyone can go home happier.
7 Habits of Healthy Relationships. Creating and maintaining a healthy and lasting relationship can take hard work. However, this hard work doesn't have to be painful! Dr. Jenn discusses seven keys to creating or maintaining a thriving relationship, shares insights from her counseling practice, and offers tips to immediately put into play. This is not your usual list of relationship tips!
What is Mindful Sex? How to Use Mindfulness to Improve Your Intimacy. In definition, mindfulness sounds simple - be present in the moment and aware without judgment. However, in practice this can be a difficult skill to develop. The benefits, however, are endless! Dr. Jenn leads the audience through a new experience of mindfulness and their senses, and increases awareness about the power of this simple practice. Mindfulness is the key to changing harmful patterns, improving self-esteem, being present with an intimate partner, enjoying pleasure, and experiencing joy in everyday moments. This lecture not only improves sexual interactions, it improves lives overall!
Thank you so much for joining our group last night! You truly have a gift and passion for this work! I felt so empowered by what I learned through our fun and easy conversation last night and am so thankful for the time you shared with us!" ~B.H., Fundraiser
