Somatic Sex Therapist Certification


Somatic Sex Therapist Certification

Become a Certified Somatic Sex Therapist
This 60-credit program, comprised of 15 classes (including 8 elective hours), is designed to allow students to flexibly work around their schedules, streaming the content-rich courses at their own convenience. Courses can be taken in any order, but they are structured to ramp up from introductory to advanced knowledge content. This unparalleled program steps squarely into a contemporary view of sex therapy, where both the mind and body are considered within a holistic approach. The robust and comprehensive certification program draws on the foundational principles of somatic psychology including polyvagal theory, breathwork, movement practices, narrative and art therapy, tantra and integrative trauma theories. Understanding how the brain and body work together informs effective somatic sex therapy interventions, which are most often used as an addition to, rather than a replace for, traditional sex therapy methodologies. Utilizing somatic sex therapy techniques inherently offers titrated pacing and client-lead initiatives to move clients toward states of embodiment, empowerment, and sexual health. A certification in somatic sex therapy allows clinicians to feel comfortable working with emerging somatic methodologies and sex therapy practices.
