As one of the nation’s leading organizations of sexuality professionals, The American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT) advocates for all people to have access to high-quality sexual education and healthcare.
An important benefit AASECT offers members is the opportunity to develop as leaders in our community and in our field. I am writing to invite you to join others who share their talents with AASECT and lead our organization. Over the years, they have transformed AASECT from a small organization to one of over 3,500 members. Today, AASECT volunteers enjoy special fellowship with each other, the rewards of building group purpose and meaning, and the results of facing challenges that enhance professional and personal growth and development.
AASECT condemns the tragic shooting in Atlanta, GA, on March 16th, understanding this act of violence to be at the intersection of issues of sexualization, race, gender, socioeconomic status, and clinical practice. We offer sympathies and condolences to the families, friends, and communities of Soon Chung Park Hyun Jung Grant Yong Ae Yue Suncha Kim Delaina Ashley Yaun Gonzalez Paul Andre Michels Xiaojie Tan Daoyou Feng Elcias Hernandez-Ortiz
It is my pleasure to announce that in an effort to make CE learning options more accessible, the AASECT board of directors has approved the following update to our requirements for mode of instruction: Synchronous online and in-person education will be considered equivalent to each other
Supervisors and Supervisees no longer need to apply to AASECT for approval to start supervision. No more waiting for approval! Supervisee and Supervisor can begin to accrue supervision hours toward AASECT Certification once they have gathered required documents and signed and dated their contract.
AASECT recognizes the extreme personal and financial toll that the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on its membership. The AASECT Board of Directors, Finance Committee, and the Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee have been working together to establish some limited financial assistance for membership dues.
Though everyone wishes it was over, here we are still in the midst of COVID-19.
Dear Members and Certified Professional Members of AASECT, It excites me to thank and praise AASECT’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee as they propel our organization forward and challenge us to be better professionals and people. Because of their efforts, a new Section V. #C will become effective for all certifications as of midnight on 31 December 2020.
