Dr. Thomas Wood

Dr. Thomas Wood Featured on Conference Panel

Dr. Wood will be voicing his thoughts regarding the use of terminology in therapy and education at this year’s annual American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) Conference in Minneapolis, MN. He will be joining educator powerhouses Bill Taverner and Konnie McCaffree on the panel.
There is an ongoing debate as to whether it is better to use the terms “
sex” or “sexuality” as professional descriptors. For example, is it more descriptive and appropriate to refer to educational components as “sex education” or “sexuality education.” Additionally, is it more descriptive and appropriate to refer to the therapeutic professions as “sex therapy” or “sexuality therapy.” On the surface, it may sound like semantics but the implications are far reaching in how professionals are trained and how services are delivered. This is bound to be a fascinating conversation and Dr. Wood will be a great addition to the panel!
