We are pleased to introduce the Southwest Sexual Health Alliance based in Austin, Texas. Heather M McPherson LPC-S, LMFT and the Texas Section Leader for AASECT and Dylan Davies LMFTA launched the organization this past summer in efforts to provide provocative dialog and radical collaboration around sexual health issues. Our mission is to provide educational opportunities in sexual health to students, psychologists, physicians, social workers, educators, therapists and sexual health professionals.
Dr. Martha Tara Lee, DHS, MA, Author of Love Sex and Everything In Between, has written a new book: Orgasmic Yoga: Masturbation, Meditation and Everything In-Between.
Though I am sad this is my last entry as President of AASECT, I’m excited to look at all we have accomplished. The changes may not immediately be obvious to the membership, but the internal working of the Board, with our very active committees and management company, has had a wonderfully productive two years. EVERY committee has instituted change based on feedback from the membership and committee members.
Greetings from the Conference Co-Chairs! The 2016 AASECT Annual Conference Theme is Putting the Pieces Together: Inclusivity in Practice. A mosaic is made of numerous pieces, each one unique, and equally important in the end result. In order to construct one, intricate and unique tiles are brought together to create an overall picture. If a single piece is unaccounted for, the mosaic is unfinished. The full beauty of a landscape cannot be actualized if any piece is lost, neglected or destroyed.
Meet the 2016 Annual Conference Planning Committee! Mariotta Gary-Smith, MPH, CSE - Conference Co-Chair
