Over the last 50 years, Asexuality and Aromanticism have grown in visibility, community, in academia, and recently surging in awareness during the continued isolation of the Covid-19 pandemic. Research suggests that 1% to 5% of the general population is Asexual, meaning there are over 70 million Asexual people around the globe (numbers for Aromanticism are unknown). As support for the validity of these orientations grows, so does the need for education and training in creating space for Asexuality and Aromanticism among clients working with sexuality professionals. In this six hour class we will explore the basics of Asexuality and Aromanticism, how to support clients in their discovery and sexual health in a society that pushes compulsory sexuality, compulsory romanticism, amatonormativity, heteronormativity, and mononormativity. We will explore how Asexual and Aromantic people can build affirming relationships, self-acceptance, and fullfilment.

2-part training | 3 hours each day | 6 hours total | 6 AASECT CEs
