UPDATE: This Human Sexuality course has not yet been updated. The new series contains much of the same information, but any discussion of mental health issues will be based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) published by the American Psychiatric Association in May 2013.
Comprehensive review of the biological, emotional and psychological aspects of human sexual behavior.
The following topics will be covered:
Perspectives on Sexuality
Conception, Pregnancy & Childbirth
Sex Research: Methods & Problems
Birth Control and Contraception
Female Sexual Anatomy/Physiology
Sexuality Over the Life Span
Male Sexual Anatomy/Physiology
Sexual Health Issues
Gender and Gender Roles
Sexual Arousal and Response
Love and Intimacy
Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Communication in Sexual Behavior
Atypical Sexual Behavior
Sexually Explicit Materials
The material in this series related to mental health diagnoses is based on the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision which was published in 2000.
The podcasts include live lecture recordings and pre-recorded segments that focus on frequently asked questions and concepts that often provide a challenge for many students. PDF files or handouts may be included to further enhance the students' understanding of the field of human sexuality. These materials are intended to supplement the traditional classroom approach of my courses and to enhance the students' learning experience.
Target audience should include current students and others who wish to know more about the topic areas. The materials will not be textbook specific so that they will be useful to others. For HACC students, the purpose is to allow them an opportunity to review or catch up on lectures/class periods that they may have missed or misunderstood. For other learners outside of HACC, the purpose is to supply another resource for their learning that is both entertaining and educational.
The course was originally recorded during the Spring Semester 2013 with some updates as necessary.
Please send any suggestions/feedback to email@example.com.
I hope you enjoy listening and thanks for exploring the world of human sexuality with me.
