Eric has trained, educated, and enlightened more than 250,000 face-to-face audience members in keynotes, workshops, and all-day retreats - in addition to reaching countless listeners and viewers via radio (FM and satellite) and television. He has keynoted numerous national and international conferences, including BACCHUS, the NY Immigration Coalition Youth Conference, the NCEMSF, and more. From the local health clinic to the CDC, Eric has also provided medical trainings to countless providers and students. Finally, Eric remains one of the few modern American sexologists to have been invited to lecture on human sexuality at Oxford University

  • Student "Success" (based on positive psychology)
  • Suicide prevention (including LGBT)
  • Supporting Undocumented Sexual Assault Survivors in Higher Education
