The Sex Therapy Certificate (STC) at CIIS strives to provide clinicians with the highest quality sexuality and sex therapy education. It is our mission to offer comprehensive training to psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, couples’ therapists, and allied professionals, in support of practitioners offering sex therapy as a naturally integrated part of the therapeutic experience. The STC program has the distinction of being one of the few programs in the nation offered by an accredited academic institution, and also provides 75 Continuing Education Credits (CEs) for California licensed LCSWs, LPCCs, LEPs, and LMFTs.

CIIS' history of contributions in the fields of counseling psychology, integral health, and sexuality studies form the basis for our approach to the certificate. We strive to provide an integral view of the field of sex therapy. This approach means including multiple perspectives and philosophies, remaining rooted in a sex positive view, and affirming the diversity of sexual practices, experiences, and identities of our communities and clients.
