Herpes Foundation Teleclasses
A Teleclass is an innovative, exciting way to share knowledge. Teleclasses are just like any other “real” classes, but they are held over the telephone with a number of other people on the same telephone “bridge”.
The Herpes Resource Center’s Foundation Teleclasses are a perfect forum for people requiring information and support in a confidential, anonymous manner. These classes expand your knowledge and understanding of the issues surrounding herpes and give you effective, hands-on tools to help you tackle them.
We will discuss practical matters about this virus in a safe, interactive environment, as well as address the feelings of guilt, frustration, fear, hurt or emotional distress you may be experiencing. This combination of support and information will give you self-confidence, empower you to leave the stigma behind and help you live a “life beyond herpes”.
The Herpes Foundation Classes are facilitated by Jocelyn Rose. Jocelyn is a licensed counsellor who became specialized in herpes while mentoring under Dr. Stephen Sacks (author of “The Truth About Herpes”) at the Viridae Clinic in Vancouver, BC. You can learn more about Jocelyn by reading her bio atwww.jocelynrose.com.
Class dates and times are listed on our registration page.
The Teleclasses cover the following topics:
Transmission of The Virus – This teleclass covers the basics of herpes transmission. We’ll answer the most frequently asked questions, give you the facts and debunk several myths about it as well!
Treatments – This class will help you examine options regarding the herpes treatments available to help you better manage oral and genital herpes. We will discuss a number of different approaches to treatment, questions you may wish to ask your physician, as well as things you may wish to consider before deciding on a course of treatment. We’ll also cover some important issues surrounding natural health products and give you some good resources that will aid you in being an informed consumer of health care products.
Talking with a Partner – How to approach the issue of telling a partner you have herpes, in a safe, empowered manner. We give you hands-on, practical tips on how to do this comfortably.
Safer Sex – Sex is a contact sport — risk is inevitable. This class will help you get savvy about safer sex. We’ll talk about telling a partner, the range of condoms out there and what the differences between them are, why you should have a roll of saran wrap in your bedroom, and more! Come learn how to make safer sex fun!
