2016 Summer Institute - Revisiting ‘Sex Addiction’: Transformative Ways to Address Out of Control Sexual Behavior

The 2016 AASECT Summer Institute will take place August 11-14, 2016 in St. Louis, MO. The theme for the institute is Revisiting 'Sex Addiction': Transformative Ways of Addressing Out of Control Sexual Behavior. The program is designed to help educators and clinicians define out of control sexual behavior using current empirical evidence and evaluate treatment models and tools consistent with this evidence.

The 2016 AASECT Summer Institute will bring together a one of a kind faculty of twelve key theorists, researchers and practitioners who are helping to evolve understanding of out of control sexual behavior.  Participants will be able to listen to and dialogue with leaders in research and therapy to expand critical thinking through experiential learning and thoughtful discourse.  
The three and a half day Institute (30 AASECT CEs) will move from observations and reflections on the state of the field to critical skills in evaluating research and utilizing screening and assessment tools.
A sexual health approach to this human behavior problem will focus institute participants on creative individual, couples and group therapy models that emphasize sexual rights, responsibility and pleasure. Treatment for out of control sexual behavior must transform from moribund and sexologically uninformed approaches to theory and treatments that utilize models of contemporary sexuality to construct each client's vision of sexual health. Please join us for this critical conversation.

The Institute is limited to 50 participants and is approved for 30 AASECT CE credits. Lunches are included in registration, and one dinner is included Thursday night.
