HS 5400 Erotic Intelligence and Pleasure Literacy
Friday, May 3, 2019, 6–8pm; Saturday & Sunday, May 4 & 5, 2019, 9am-6pm
Because much traditional (abstinence only) sex education is associated with managing risk (pregnancy prevention, HIV) and discouraging sexual expression in young adulthood, there are often gaps in knowledge with regard to erotic intelligence. This course emphasizes helping clients to develop a more conscious, less shame-laden relationship to pleasure. Participants will refine their skills in articulating their own desires and improving communication with sexual partners. It will also help clinicians to enhance their own sexual intelligence, learn about anatomy, physiology, sex toys and role-playing, as well as sex-positive ways to impart this kind of information to clients.

Friday, May 10, 2019, 6–8pm; Saturday & Sunday, May 11 & 12, 2019, 9am–6pm
From the emergence of our development as humankind, we have been immersed in a rich field of interdependent, interrelated kinship relations with plants and animals. The human psyche has evolved from this immersive experience. We live within the flux of weather, the shifts of seasons and the lunar cycle. Though modernity has resulted in feeling removed from this ancestral connection, it remains the source of our lives. This weekend we will spend time intimately experiencing the wild natural world of forest, river and mountain to grow closer to the wild freedom we carry within ourselves.

We will learn child and parent therapy practices that repair and strengthen healthy attachment in our clients. We will do processes to strengthen our own healthy attachment to our core self, and gain an understanding of that as one of our primary tools as human beings, and healing professionals. Early disrupted attachment can be resolved through deep inner work and attuned counseling that promotes healing on multiple levels. A special cultural component will be presented by Dr. Scott Thomas.

COMMUNITY LECTURE Sponsored by the New Earth Institute
Revisiting Leadership as an International Student
Magdalena Karlick, M.A., LPCC, ATR-BC
Wednesday, May 29, 2019. 6:30-8:30pm, SWC CAMPUS
The many roles that I have held over the years have encouraged me to look deeper at “leadership”: as a mother, teacher, art therapist, a supervisor, and as a student. This past summer I started a post graduate program at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee Switzerland in their Expressive Arts division. Nestled in the Alps, with frozen and running waterfalls and stunning wild flowers, I became a part of an interdisciplinary and international community focused on working creatively with groups. Through this process of becoming a student again, I started contemplating the responsibility of the leader to create a “safe” space for and with a group. Using a phenomenological lens, the questions started flowing: What is safety and who defines it? When does discomfort encourage growth? When does it lead to a fight, flight or freeze response? How does the history of the United States shade my understanding of social justice within the Art Therapy field? How can a global perspective influence interpersonal choices as a leader? How do these questions relate to the education of our youth? In this lecture I will share my experiences, the imagery of creative collaboration, and how this exploration has influenced my practice as a facilitator.
