Facilitating Dialogue on Religion and Sexuality Using a Descriptive Approach
McCarty, Richard W.
New Directions for Student Services, n125 p39-46 Spr 2009
Dialogue on religion and sexuality is difficult because these topics consist of deeply seated concepts of self, as well as one's relationship to other selves in the world. This chapter offers practical steps for creating and navigating difficult dialogues with respect to sexuality and religion. It suggests that partnership with departments, programs, and scholars of religious studies may prove helpful for student affairs professionals.
