AASECT Approved Post-Graduate Training for Diagnosis and Treatment of Sexual Dysfunctions. Sept 2014, NYC

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to announce the dates for the second cohort of the HAT training in New York City.

This program is approved by the American Association for Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) for Continuing Education credits (CE) which could be used towards certification as a sex therapist by AASECT.

The HAT program is presented in three levels: Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced. It is based on the European model of assessment and care for sexual dysfunctions and designed for a wide range of therapists, counselors and licensed mental health professionals who would like to gain systematic knowledge and skills in working with sexual issues of individuals and couples.

I chose the name as a symbol of various ‘hats’ we wear as therapists to be able to address, assess and manage any sexuality and relationship issues our clients bring to the room.

This training includes principles from various disciplines such as: sexual-medicine, psychosexual therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, neuro-linguistic programming, neuroscience and systems theory. The training will cover: Initial assessment techniques, history taking, formulation and treatment plan, educational approaches and props for various cultural groups, female and male sexual dysfunctions, blocks in the process and how to overcome them and ethical dilemmas of the therapist and how far one should go. Participants of all levels are welcome.

Please contact me for further information and to arrange for a telephone conversation to see if this course would fit your professional needs via the contact form [gravityform id=”2″ name=”General Contact” title=”false”]

The next Foundation cohort will start on September 26th, 2014 in Midtown New York City (9.30-11.30 am. Ten Fridays, once a month through 2014-15)
