Human Sexuality Education, Section B
Description: Sexuality is a core component of our identities, from birth to death. Throughout the lifespan, people engage with and express their sexuality differently. In order to be a good clinician and provide the appropriate information and intervention, it is necessary to understand how sexual development evolves over the course of one’s life.
This program explores physical, psychological, cognitive, and cultural aspects of sexual development; special attention will be given to child/adolescent develop as well as sexual development in older/aging populations.
Through lecture and discussion, this course will enhance participants’ knowledge as well as provide a space to challenge traditional messages or beliefs about sexuality and sexual expression throughout the lifespan.

A recognized expert on sexuality and relationships, Dr. Logan Levkoff encourages honest conversation about sexuality and the role it plays in our culture. Logan makes it clear that sex and sexuality are not “dirty” words; she works to create an environment where people feel comfortable asking (and getting answers to) their most personal questions. Logan empowers children, adolescents, and adults to embrace their sexuality and challenge the impractical, and often unhealthy, messages that they are exposed to.
Logan is dedicated to perpetuating healthy and positive messages about sexuality and relationships. She speaks on a wide range of issues, including sexual health and sexuality education, trends in sexuality, relationship hurdles, and the role of sexuality in pop culture and politics. For over a decade, Logan has been teaching groups of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds. She has designed and implemented sexuality education programs, faculty development, and parent education in many secular and religious independent schools, universities, medical schools, and community organizations.
