Upcoming Consultations and Trainings

Peer Consultation and Training in Psychosexual Therapy – Starting November 10, 2017

Many professionals in the field receive add hoc trainings on various topics. While professionals may feel very knowledgable, they may not be sure how much they know or how much they don’t. It becomes only apparent when they are faced with a new client or a new presenting problem, what may be missing or polishing. This consultation group and training is designed for professionals to acquire skills to practice with confidence.
The two-hour modules will consist of a whole hour dedicated to bringing new advances in the field and practical skills that can be used in everyday practices. The HAT training is built  into these sessions providing a valuable addition to professional’s current knowledge and skill sets. The Training hour of these sessions are AASECT CE eligible. We can also work out a way to offer CE to other providers if you are interested.
“My goal is to start something similar to the Manhattan Sex Therapy Group that we formed 10 years ago in New York City. A community of highly skilled and trained professionals who continue to grow together. I would also like to make this growth as systematic as possible.” – Dr. Sara
