About the Program

Clinical, supervisory, and educational components for sex therapy certification are typically offered onsite – but are currently online due to COVID-19. The curriculum is designed for post-graduate clinicians who want to expand their clinical repertoire in sexuality.

Our Sex Therapy training program consists of three courses that run consecutively, beginning with Sex Therapy I, 2-hour group supervision sessions (held bi-weekly or every third week), and two 7-hour SARS (Sexual Attitude Reassessment). Classes meet online via Zoom, and we offer two cohorts.

  • 90 hours of sex therapy courses (3 10-week online courses)
  • 10 hours of experiential SAR (Sexual Attitude Reassessment) workshop (10 CE Credits)
  • 25 hours of online group supervision (25 CE Credits)
  • Supervised clinical experience (your cases and/or CFR clients) towards the 300 clinical hours required by AASECT

“CFR was the only program offering everything I needed for certification: It had synchronized learning, meaning that the lessons were live over Zoom; A small group of eight students per cohort, allowing for a more intimate interaction with peers; Group supervision was also included, which a lot of the other programs did not have; Fully online, affordable, and met all of the AASECT-certification requirements.”
