About the Authors

Gary Kelly

Gary F. Kelly has been a sexuality educator for 35 years, publishing several popular books in the field. After a 30-year career as a Counselor and Vice President for Student Affairs at Clarkson University, and as Headmaster of The Clarkson School, he retired from administrative work to devote more time to writing, teaching, and counseling. He continues to teach the undergraduate courses in human sexuality and psychoactive substances in the Psychology Department at Clarkson University. <p>Kelly was an innovator in developing graduate training in human sexuality for counselors, and taught graduate courses in the counseling and human development program at St. Lawrence University for over 20 years. He maintains a practice as a licensed mental health counselor. <p>As a person who strongly believes that young people must have solid basic information about sex and their own sexuality to make rational and responsible decisions, Kelly presents here a balanced approach to the physical as well as the psychological and sociological aspects of human sexuality. His work with students received national recognition with his election to the board of directors of the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). <p>Kelly served for 8 years as the editor of the <i>Journal of Sex Education and Therapy</i>, and presently serves as a member of the Editorial Board of the <i>American Journal of Sexuality Education</i>. He is a member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists and of the Society for the Scientific Study of Human Sexuality. He is also a diplomate of the American Board of Sexology and a clinical fellow of the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists. He believes that his work with people in teaching, counseling, and therapy over the years has enlarged his personal and professional perspective on how people integrate their sexuality into their lives. The real people stories and real student voices in the book reflect that perspective. <p> Gary F. Kelly is available as a consultant and speaker in the field of human sexuality and sexuality education. For further information, e-mail gary.kelly@clarkson.edu or call (315) 265-2772. .
