What is a Basic SAR?

The Sexual Attitude Reassessment workshop (SAR) is a process-oriented, structured group experience to promote participants’ awareness of their attitudes and values related to sexuality, and to assist them in understanding how these attitudes and values affect them professionally and personally. Since the primary purpose of a SAR is the examination of attitudes and values, it is not a traditional academic experience designed to disseminate cognitive information, nor is it psychotherapy directed toward the resolution of personal problems.

Many individuals educate or counsel in the area of human sexuality or wish to be trained in the discipline. It is crucial that people who deal with issues of human sexuality be aware of their own attitudes and understand how they may impact their work. Certification is an important part of practicing in the field of sexuality, and candidates most often satisfy this requirement by participation in a Sexual Attitude Reassessment Seminar (SAR).

Workshop Design
