To continue our work from the Community Gathering last week, Student Union is partnering with the Office of Global Activities and the Office of Student Services, to host a Letter Writing Campaign. The campaign will be centered on various topics that relate to current developments in immigration/asylum policy and enforcement. We want to invite students, faculty and staff, within and outside of the SSW, to write to their state and national representatives expressing their concerns, and to urge the reps to push for humanitarian reform within various sectors of the immigration system. We will have various writing stations with postcards and the resources needed for participants to take action. RSVP: http://archive.ssw.umich.edu/forms/rsvp/index.html?eventID=E3714

This course will address the sexual health needs of individuals and couples throughout the adult lifespan over diverse cultures and populations. This interpersonal practice minicourse can augment other interpersonal practice courses or can be taken independently. Building on basic sex therapy models and integrating these models with multicultural counseling theory and cultural and ethical competencies, course participants will examine their own cultural backgrounds, belief systems, and biases specifically with reference to sexual health. Utilizing the lifespan approach, key considerations in sexual health education and sexual health treatments will be described. Course participants will learn culturally appropriate assessment, diagnosis, and brief intervention approaches and will be challenged to think about the adjustment of interventions to include multicultural considerations and the intersectionality of clients identities. The course will emphasize strengths-based adaptation and resiliency in individual and couples sexual health challenges. The right to education in sexual health and treatment of sexual health problems will be discussed within the framework of mental health care.
Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.
