This program is for mental health professionals interested in increasing their competence in the area of human sexuality through a clinically and contemporarily relevant, sex-positive framework. This certificate will assist with assessment, diagnosis and treatment models utilized with individuals and couples within a sex therapy scope. This certificate is offered as solid foundation for professionals who are interested in increasing their sexual competency with clients, yet do not want to go through the extensive process of full sex therapist certification. By offering foundational courses such as Diagnosis and Treatment of Sexual Function and more specific topics including Overview of Human Sexual Response and Taking a Sexual History, and Working with LGBTQIA clients, practitioners will feel informed, capable and effective when approaching their clients’ sexuality concerns.
