The context of this unit is the Catholic theological tradition and it proceeds on the basis that human sexuality concerns affectivity, the formation of a genuine relationship of love that leads to marriage, and more generally bonds of communion with others. The unit explores Catholic teaching pertaining to sexuality in general, marriage and family, other committed relationships, and education in sexuality. These themes are studied within a framework that considers human sexuality as an integral dimension of the human person.
