To complete the rest of your program, you’ll need to take several more online courses that include cognitive behavioral therapy, systemic sex therapy, and more.
Due to the pandemic, AASECT is permitting synchronous, online education to count toward the live training requirements through May 2021. We offer the same high quality content and guest instructors online as in our live training.
If you have hesitated to take training because you are unable to travel, this is a good time to hop on board!
Weekend content is much more exciting than those titles—you’ll learn all about treating sex and relationship problems related to chronic illness, painful sex, and disabilities in Weekend A. In Weekend B, you’ll learn about assessment, treating LGBT couples, and working with transgender clients.

Weekend workshops are offered on an ongoing basis. You'll be joined by current learners enrolled in the Comprehensive Sexology Program and the Advanced Topics in Sexology Program. To view upcoming weekend workshops, check the dates listed in the Comprehensive Sexology Program
