This course will be an excellent introduction to clinicians new to the practice of sex therapy, while allowing seasoned practitioners to refresh their knowledge and skills.  For those with an interest in more intensive clinical training in a special area, there are also two other pre-conference workshops on some of the hottest topics in sex and couple therapy, giving by master clinicians in the field.  Individuals may register for both of these exciting and informative workshops. The program is approved for you to receive up to 23 credits from ACOG, AASECT, APA and/or NYSED.

The Annual Meeting on Friday April 21st and Saturday, April 22nd, Healing Relationships and Fostering Sexual Well-Being, will stimulate our thinking about sexuality and its problems, moving beyond our current conceptualizations of relationships, trauma and sexual well-being. Now more than ever, is a time to fully embrace the diversity of sexual preferences and experiences and to apply our science of sexuality to developing the best treatments for those who seek our help. In addition, we’ll get an update on recent developments in the diagnosis of sexual dysfunction, most notably with a panel discussion on the proposed changes to ICD-11.

Sunday, April 23rd, offers you an Ethics Course that will address the ethical issues inherent sex therapy in particular.
