Sex therapist universities?
Posted Tue Jun 28, 2005 12:45 AM
If anyone has any SERIOUS information I'd be greatful as far as what programs I might look at or who I might email.
I already tried finding Laura Berman (One of the Berman sisters on the show Berman and Berman ). But her email addy is impossible to find. So is anyone who MIGHT have contact with her to relay a message.
I'm guessing I won't get more than one or two joking replies on this one, but hopefully someone can prove me wrong...please??? I figured it certainly couldn't hurt to ask.

I know we're joking around but for others reading, please keep the replies serious. My future is nothing to fuck around with.

1. What kind of schooling and/or training did you have to go through in order to become a sex therapist?
After receiving my bachelor's and master's degree in psychology, I went on to obtain my PhD, then a clinical license. In order to become a sex therapist I had to go through a specialized formal training program at UCLA for a year, which included both course work and a 300-hour internship, which qualified me to apply to the American Association of Sex Educators (AASECT) for certification. Alternatively, one can attend a number of sexuality conferences to earn credits, which are called continuing education units, or CEUs, instead of going through a specialized formal training program. I also had to have many letters of recommendation and reference. Being certified comes up for renewal every 3 years. When I renew my certification it will be for both a certified sex therapist and educator. I will have to demonstrate that I have been active in the field and taken 36 hours of sex education courses. Since I am a conference junky, this is a no brainer for me.
