The University of Michigan is a wonderful educational opportunity for licensed mental health professionals to take a first rate path towards becoming an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist.

Start date: April 2017. Website: http://ssw.umich.edu/offices/continuing-education/certificate-courses/sexual-health

If you are a current student or alumni of this program, we hope you will stay in touch by joining me for “Neil Talks” this summer.

The University of Michigan Sexual Health Certificate Program (UMSHCP) provides comprehensive education and training to professionals interested in the field of sexual health in three tracks. Participants will gain assessment, intervention, and consultation skills; will learn strategies to apply these skills in the workplace; and will link with a peer learning community to practice new skills and discuss applied learning.

Program Format

Following a group-style ‘cohort’ learning model, participants enter together as a class and remain together throughout the training in their track (see calendar at UMSHCP website). Total program lasts one year—April 2017 to March 2018.

The new cohort commences in Spring of each year. Throughout the program, participants participate in a total of seven two-day minicourses (minicourses=15 hours each) if pursuing sexuality educator training, or nine two-day minicourses if pursuing sexuality counselor or sex therapist training.  The weekends are arranged so that a participant can take both a counselor or therapist track and the educator track should they wish to do so.
