InterSEXtions: Working at the Intersection of Culture, Relationships, and Sexuality

Interculturalists work at the intersection of relationships and societies.  We help folks to prepare to work with others who are different and similar, navigate challenges they have with one another, and to teach people how to leverage generalizations, avoid stereotypes, and manage our biases.  Sexuality around the globe is one of the most taboo aspects of culture, and one of the most important aspects of people’s lives.  Dr. Sitron will explore these intersections, recommend strategies, and discuss some of the nuances of language that can be challenging when we are trying to affirm people’s lived experiences.

Registration = FREE for current SIETAR USA members in good standing

Registration = $25.00 for nonmembers

About the Presenter

Dr. Justin A. Sitron is Associate Dean in the College of Health and Human Services at Widener University and an associate professor of Human Sexuality studies. Justin started his career as an English and Spanish teacher and found his way into sexuality education through his work as a diversity and inclusion trainer. His research focuses on sexological worldview development, the development and evaluation of educational programs, and teaching health care providers and educators how to incorporate a sexual rights framework into their practice. Justin is interested in how people’s worldviews about sexuality change either naturally or as a result of training they receive. He focuses his work and prioritizes projects that aim to change dominant cultural narratives that stigmatize, marginalize, and oppress people. Justin is bilingual (English-Spanish), conversational in American Sign Language, and holds a PhD from Widener University, and a BA and a BS from Villanova University. Justin currently serves as Secretary on the SIETAR USA Board of Directors.
