Strategies for addressing cross cultural conflict in sexuality education

Don A Dyson PhD

In the field of sexology, professionals regularly encounter incredible challenges in overcoming cultural issues that create conflict. One particular challenge is the ways in which cultural differences arise in within the context of sexuality education interventions. How does a facilitator, educator or therapist address the realities of strongly held personal beliefs while still encouraging open dialogue and promoting sexual health in group settings? When conflicts arise, sexuality educators are frequently ill-equipped to deal with the clashes, generate honest dialogue about the differences that exist, and utilize the experience as a way to acknowledge issues of power, privilege, oppression and belief.
