What is a SAR?

Sexual Attitudes Reassessment (SAR) is a clinical professional development experience focused on sexuality topics. When done with compassion and intention, a SAR is an extensive sexuality training and workshop for individuals who support clients in various ways in their work.

SARs are not only for sexuality professionals. They are for all of us! If you work with people in a therapeutic, healthcare, educational, social service, support, or adjacent environment, you need a SAR. When done with an interdisciplinary approach, a SAR allows each participant the opportunity to examine their own personal beliefs, understand how those beliefs inform their work and identify areas in which they need to develop more cultural competence.

The ANTE UP! SAR is an experience unlike any other SAR or any other professional development experience. Moving beyond common practices and attempts of inclusion and diversity, the ANTE UP! SAR combines racial justice, disability justice, reproductive justice frameworks and practice with tools for self-analysis and embodiment. Participants are welcome to bring their full selves into a learning and an unlearning space. Our intention is to make connections, be challenged, expand, and go all-in for collective and individual liberation and freedom. In other words, ANTE UP!

The world we have inherited is not the same one that we were trained in to do this work. It’s a different world for each of us and there is an urgency to make crucial decisions about the practice we have connected with and caring for other human beings.

The ANTE UP! SAR requires each of us to go all in and not half step when doing this work—it is for community members who are ready for a next-level experience of un/learning. We will explore how to identify how -isms may still manifest and unlearning as a lifelong practice. This SAR is a unique space to be honest about our feelings, where they are held in our bodies, and how they show up for us. It will help you identify internalized societal norms, challenge language and stigma, become more reflexive, understand your boundaries—as human beings and professionals—and communicate them more effectively. In all the work we do, we make decisions that have consequences, and this SAR will allow you to clarify your own path, grounded in your ethics and values, and step up to the challenge of facilitating more healing, resilience, and autonomy for the communities you serve.

What is an Advanced SAR?

An advanced SAR is a similar experience outlined above but with a particular focus for a shorter amount of time. This focus is on various BDSM relationship types, expressions, and activities for seasoned and emerging sexuality professionals.

Where does my money go?

When you pay for your ticket $350, 100% of event fee, goes directly to Bianca and Phoenix. There is a 3% fee from stripe to manage ticket sales. This is an event and training that is by and supporting a fat queer disabled LatiNegra Puerto Rican femme sexologist (Bianca) and a queer, genderqueer sexuality educator (Phoenix). We will offer spaces for participants who need discounts or scholarships. This is economic justice. Please email Bianca for more information on scholarships.
