Part I: Foundations of BDSM

Part I: Foundations of BDSM

Part I: Foundations of BDSM will expose the student to the fundamentals of BDSM and its sub-culture.

These five core classes taken together are designed to introduce students to the ways in which socio-cultural factors in sexual values and behaviors influence psychotherapeutic theories and research.

Part I will develop insight into how psychotherapy can pathologize instead of help people in these populations. Through research and ethnographic reports, students will become sensitive to the cultural nuances related to the practice of BDSM.
