Come out of the CAVE with enhanced confidence, comfort, and competence!

CAVE is a human sexuality training program for students, professionals in health care, counselling, education, and social services fields, parents, and other individuals seeking enhanced personal relationships.

GOAL: To provide individuals and professionals with an opportunity to build awareness, comfort, confidence, and competence by exploring their values and gaining the knowledge required to talk about sexuality in an unbiased, non-judgmental, knowledgeable, and inclusive manner. Teaching techniques and resources will be provided in each program.

Each program offers distinct learning materials and objectives. No pre-requisite is required for either CAVE or SAR workshop. Those working directly with clients or patients on sexuality or sexual health matters will benefit most from the SAR process. Contact us to determine which workshop is right for you.
