Electives

Electives

Your electives are decided in consultation with the SSEA faculty and can include online and in-person courses on sex, sexuality and business development. Electives support each of our students in developing their competencies and following their passions while creating their own professional practice. The following courses are pre-approved electives. Up to two of these courses can be taken for credit before acceptance into Core Course Two: Erotic Practice for Somatic Sex Education. Your electives can also include other relevant online and in-person trainings that are approved by the faculty. If you have already taken trainings that you think may be eligible as electives, you can make application for their approval after completing Core Course 1.

Wheel of Consent: Like a Pro with Dr. Betty Martin or a certified teacher

“Like a Pro”, is an experiential workshop for touch professionals that teaches about the 4 quadrants of touch found in the wheel of consent;  Accepting, Serving, Taking and Allowing.

Holistic Peer Counselling with Nekole Shapiro and HPC Mentors Group

HPC is “Do It Yourself (DIY)” technology. This means every person who takes the course learns both counseling and clienting skills and practices both roles. In this way, the person being counseled is always in control. They know the techniques, and decide to utilize their triggers as catalysts for healing or not. HPC breaks the dynamic of, “I am healer” and “you heal me”. It recognizes that we all have the ability to give and receive loving attention that provides an opportunity for healing.
