Great Resources for Sexuality and Social Work Educators

As an educator, I'm always looking for new ways to engage and inform my students. When I came across the Flipboard, an on-line platform where people can create and customize their own e-magazines, I immediately recognized its potential as a teaching aid.  No matter what topic you teach, you can create a Flipboard magazine full of information connected to the material you cover in class.

I have spent more than a year populating my e-magazines on Flipboard with a wide variety of relevant news articles, research reports, and opinion pieces.

Since the beginning of the fall 2014 school semester, I've had the pleasure and privilege to teach my class "Sexuality Concepts for Social Workers" at two different college campuses.  In my course, students are required to use my textbook with the same title.  That textbook is scheduled to be released nationally near the end of January 2015 from Cognella Publishing.  When that historic event happens, I'll write all about it here.

On the topic of publications, I'm proud to announce that my Human Sexuality dissertation has been made available in book-form through LAMBERT Academic Publishing.

Q: I just learned a little about Native American two-spirited people. Is being transgender and being a two-spirit the same thing?

A:What we know about trans-related (i.e., transgender, transsexual, intersex) topics has grown significantly over recent years. However, individuals who identify as being neither “male” nor “female” or of being something entirely different, a third gender if you will, is a human reality depicted in our earliest writings and artworks. Before getting to the answer, I feel it’s necessary to provide a brief historical background of indigenous American Two-Spirit people.

Q: What do you think about premarital sex between teenagers?

Q: What do you think about premarital sex between teenagers?
 
A: This is common question I get from my Chinese college students.  What I think about premarital sex, in other words, whether or not I agree or disagree with it is irrelevant.  Teenagers in China, and all over the world, are going to engage in premarital sex regardless of what anyone thinks or feels.  In fact, China has witnessed a steady growth in teens engaging in premarital sex since the Open Door and Reform Era policies began in 1976.
