From the AASECT’s website:

The American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) is holding its 48th Annual Conference June 8-12, 2016 at the Condado Plaza Hilton in Puerto Rico. The Annual Conference averages 500-600 conference attendees from around the world in disciplines such as sexuality education, counseling, therapy, social work, psychology, sociology, nursing, medicine and more. The latest clinical techniques, research applications, and educational approaches in the field of sexual science will be featured. We look forward to celebrating our 48th Annual Conference with you!

The conference theme is Putting the Pieces Together: Inclusivity in Practice. A mosaic is made of numerous pieces, each one unique, and equally important in the end result. In order to construct one, intricate and unique tiles are brought together to create an overall picture. If a single piece is unaccounted for, the mosaic is unfinished. The full beauty of a landscape cannot be actualized if any piece is lost, neglected, or destroyed.

A mosaic cannot come together without a solid foundation upon which to build. As a part of sexuality work, it is essential that we examine the foundations of our profession, our individual practices within the profession, and our individual selves. Despite social gains, the foundations of our field are continually threatened by systems of prejudice, including racism, classism, ableism, ageism, sexism, heterocentrism, genderism, and transphobia. These systems work against us as sexuality professionals, inhibit our students’ and clients’ success in creating their own sexuality mosaic; thus, resulting in an unfinished landscape.

As we gather together in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 2016, we will explore the various pieces in the landscape of human sexuality, with an eye towards expanding our understanding of the utmost importance and significance of practicing inclusivity and impact-awareness in the field of sexuality. Beyond naming a vision of inclusivity for our field, we will also focus on identifying and implementing steps toward forming this mosaic together.
