 Enhance your sexuality counseling and therapy skills by attending an AASECT-approved Sexual Attitudes Reassessment (SAR) workshop. We are pleased to announce our SAR workshop, to be held on Friday evening, August 25 and all day Saturday, August 26, 2017 at the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana Hilton hotel, less than a mile away from Delaware's tax-free renown flagship shopping and entertainment complex, the Christiana Mall.


A Sexual Attitude Reassessment (SAR) workshop is one of the quickest, most effective ways to help educators, counselors, and therapists lower their anxiety and creatively reassess their attitudes and values around sexual issues. The ultimate goal of the SAR is to combat a culture based on sexual ignorance, sexual secretiveness, and sexual trauma. The SAR helps us approach this goal through 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. We strive to provide information that is not based on political, religious, or cultural bias or "correctness" but rather on the current scientific understanding of human sexuality. We seek to provide an opportunity for participants to explore and understand their beliefs, attitudes, values and biases within the realm of sex and sexuality from a range of perspectives.

By becoming aware of their own perceptions, reactions, feelings, and beliefs, the goal is for participants to become more comfortable with the wide variation of existing sexual attitudes, behaviors, practices, and sub-cultures. This comfort is necessary for sexual health professionals.

Note: The nature of the SAR requires that much of the media shown and discussed will be explicit.

The workshop leaders are: Anni Tuikka, MA, LPC, NCC, CPCS, CST-S and Steve K. D. Eichel, Ph.D., ABPP, CGP, CST. Ms. Tuikka is a licensed (GA and OR) and nationally certified Professional Counselor and a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor in Georgia. She is an AASECT-certified Sex Therapist, Supervisor of Sex Therapy, and approved Training Provider. Dr. Eichel is a licensed (DE and PA) and Board-certified Counseling Psychologist and Board-certified Group Psychotherapist. He is also certified by AASECT as a Sex Therapist.

Continuing Education: 10 CEs for psychologists, approved by the Delaware Psychological Association (an APA-approved provider). The workshop is also approved for 10 CEs by AASECT, the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists, for certification and recertification of sexuality educators, counselors and sex therapists.
