Health & Wellness Professor, Recovery Coach & Trainer
Corning Community College/Recover Well
Healthy sexuality is foundational to self-esteem, representing the integration of biological, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of who we are and how we relate to others. Yet, until recently positive sexuality has been a neglected topic in scientific research and treatment of SUDs. The majority of us with SUDs have lived experiences of unhealthy sexual and relationship violence, physical or medical challenges, and know what we DON'T want.
This workshop will focus on healthy sexuality and relationships in recovery and identifying what we want DO want! Become more comfortable discussing sensitive topics like sex drive, sexual response, sexually transmitted infections, sexual violence as well as sexual attraction in (early) recovery. \n\nLet's help ourselves and others practice healthy, sex positive communication strategies and powerful coaching questions that will lead to growth and fulfilling sexual wellness.
