Designing and Leading a Successful SAR A Guide for Sex Therapists, Sexuality Educators, and Sexologists
This professional guidebook and training manual introduces the Sexual Attitudes Reassessment and Restructuring (SAR) training program for professionals working in the broad field of sexology. The authors, who have led 43 SAR training programs in seven different countries, provide an overview of the history and modern day context of SARs in the first part of the book. In Part II, they provide a toolkit for creating your own SAR, using 21 photocopiable workbook pages, handy checklists, and practical tips. Part III focuses on lessons learned from past SARs and future predictions for cutting-edge SARs. This book is necessary reading for clinicians and educators who wish to offer SAR training programs or integrate “The SAR Approach” into their practice.
“We’ve been needing this book since the 1970s! Eminently practical—and this is the feature of the book that I’d emphasize—because too many sex therapists are now beginning to offer SARs without adequately knowing what it takes to run a successful one. They will gobble up this book.” Gina Ogden, PhD, LMFT, is an award-winning sex therapist, supervisor, researcher, and founder of the International Relational Sexuality Network. She is the author of our books Expanding the Practice of Sex Therapy and Exploring Desire and Intimacy.
“I would highly recommend “SAR Guide for the 21st Century” for publication. This would be a valuable guidebook to any professional working in the field of human sexuality. The range of material that would be discussed in the proposed book is unlike any other available. This book alone would enable a teacher to design an entire class curriculum and teach it with confidence.“ Stephanie Hunter Jones, PhD, is a Los Angeles-based clinical sexologist, sex-positive therapist and intimacy advisor.
“This is very original, leading edge and with the fresh approach from two people who have been updating, learning from other countries and creating new material all the time.“ Linda Savage, Phd, is an author, professional speaker, and licensed psychologist/sex therapist for over 25 years.
