SAR-book-BP.jpgA new book, SAR Sexual Attitude Reassessment Seminars: A Retrospective of SAR Early Years in Minnesota, has been written by former PHS faculty about the founding and development of the unique educational program SAR. The programs were designed for medical and seminary students and professionals from all service areas as a means to help them develop healthier attitudes and greater comfort in dealing with sexual issues brought to them by their clients, parishioners, and patients.

Beginning in the 1970s and still offered today, thousands of people have attended SAR seminars at the University of Minnesota Medical School. SAR written by Karin Weiss, PhD, and edited by Dorothy Boen, JD, is a memoir for those who have been part of the experience, and a fascinating account for others.

At a recent meeting of the Minnesota Association of Resources for Recovery and Chemical Health (MARRCH) our Board members were recalling our experience in the SAR seminars in the early 1980's. Everyone who had attended at one time or another thought it was one of the most important educational and personal experiences of their careers.

The consensus was that this program should be part of the core curriculum for substance abuse professionals. Overall, SAR was an unforgettable experience!
