Testimonials for this Training:

“The course gave me more insight to the topics that I might face when working with clients who present with sexual concerns.”
– Sam

“This course gave me more familiarity with the language for medical conditions, sexual behavior, and sexual dysfunction and the accompanying terms. I feel better informed.”
– Joe

“I really only had very vague concepts of sex therapy, and the scope of issues and treatment interventions gave me a lot of information for me “tool kit.” I also think it will help me better integrate discussions of sex and sexuality with my clients in an affirming way.”
– George

“I found it very helpful to understand the behavior in gay life (bathhouses, cruising, image crisis, roles and agreements) and for that matter anything that was outside hetero-normative behavior. It increased my sensitivity towards behaviors and social environments that I don’t travel in, but accept and want to be empathetic to.”
– Glenda

“The class taught me how to connect with clients on a level much deeper than the “presenting issue,” and to hold all of the sexual presenting issues as a part of the whole. It also educated me as to the male and female anatomies in a way that will help me understand when clients are going through physical/sexual stressors.”
– M.J.

“Learning about the kink community helped me a ton, so that I can understand the different ways to conceptualize this.”
– Victor
