• The development of counseling skills needed to work with clients exhibiting sexual issues, sexual problems, and sexual disorders (couples and individuals)
• A time for personal reflection on sexual attitudes, beliefs, and life experiences in order to bring as much congruence as possible into the therapy room
• Field trips to aesthetic and historic sites in order to understand the role of cultural diversity and sexual legacy in our lives Counseling students may take this course within the SMU Counseling Program for 3.0 credit hours towards the Master of Science degree in Counseling, with emphasis on Licensure in Marriage and Family Therapy and Licensure as a Professional Counselor (a required course for the LMFT track and an elective course for LPC or School Counseling tracks).
