STARS: Consent and Communication

Thursday, May 16th — 7:30 p.m. — $10

Evelin Dacker

In the age of #MeToo, consent has become a cultural imperative. While consent is essential for healthy sexuality, many of us have not been taught the skills to put it into consistent practice. Talking about sexual needs and desires is a challenge when we do not have a starting point. STARS is a communication model developed by Dr. Evelin Dacker that provides a guideline for enthusiastic verbal consent. STARS stands for STI/Sexual Health Status, Turn-ons, Avoids, Relationship Intentions/Needs and Safer Sex Etiquette. The STARS model helps all of us communicate effectively about sexual desires, boundaries, health and intentions in a meaningful and natural way.

In this interactive workshop by Dr. Dacker, we will explore and learn about dating in today’s age, the meaning of consensual communication, practice STARS, and share ideas with one another in a safe, structured environment. For the story about the creation of STARS, check out this TEDx Talk. For more information on Evelin Dacker, visit evelindacker.com.

How To Be A Sex-Positive Healthcare Provider

Thursday, March 14th — 7:30 p.m. — $25

Evelin DackerSexuality is often disregarded when assessing our patient’s health and happiness. Our own personal values, lack of knowledge, and discomfort around talking about sex are barriers to obtaining a holistic understanding of our patients. As the #MeToo movement, gender concerns, and the diversification of relationship and sexual styles become more prominent in our culture, it is important that we become more aware of how to navigate these changes. This class taught by Evelin Dacker, MD will help address and educate medical providers and healthcare professionals on becoming comfortable and successful in addressing the sexual concerns of our patients and provide tools to do so.

Evelin Dacker, MD is a sex-positive primary care doctor. She is board certified in Family Medicine and has a board certification in Holistic and Integrative Medicine, and a certification from the Institute for Functional Medicine. She specializes in Women’s Health, hormones, nutrition, and sexual healing.
