Adult Enrichment Summary
OUR WHOLE LIVES: SEXUALITY EDUCATION FOR YOUNG ADULTS
Linda Eller and Andy Richards will be leading a class on Our Whole Lives (OWL): Sexuality Education for Young Adults, beginning in January. The course will help college students explore sexuality through your values and experiences and enhance communication skills as you increase your understanding of healthy relationships, sexual diversity, and sexuality throughout the life cycle. It is the sexuality education opportunity you probably never had growing up!
OWL models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice. It helps adults address their attitudes, values, and feelings about themselves, their sexuality, and others’ sexuality.
Participants are guided by trained facilitators through an engaging program that addresses topics many adults have not had the opportunity to discuss in depth.
Workshop titles include: Introduction to OWL, Sexuality and Values, Sexuality and Communication, Sexuality and Spirituality, Discovering the Sexual Self, Experiencing the Sexual Other, Sexuality and Early Relationships, Sexuality and Developing Relationships, Sexuality and Committed Relationships, Sexual Diversity, Sexuality and Family, Sexuality and Aging, and Sexual Health.
Adult Enrichment at UUFCC includes book groups, writing groups, Wednesday evening programming, and classes and presentations offered during the Lifespan Learning Hour on Sunday mornings.
