The AASAT Sex Addiction Certifications demonstrate your understanding of sex addiction treatment. Properly treating sex addiction is a complex topic and involves understanding the neurological foundations, relapse strategies, behavioral patterns, possible comorbid elements, and individual assessments unique to every person undergoing treatment. Completing one of our sex addiction certifications proves that you are well equipped to handle the challenge.
The AASAT Partners Recovery Certifications are some of the few certification programs available that demonstrate your understanding and empathy towards partners of sex addicts. The partners training helps you validate partners pain, grief, and emotions. This lets you provide a full-treatment regime to help couples working through sexual addiction by working with both the person struggling with the addiction and their partner.
The AASAT Intimacy Anorexia Certifications demonstrate your understanding of intimacy anorexia treatment. Having a lack of intimacy in a relationship can be very hard to address – especially when the partners or spouses don’t know what is causing the disconnect or how to fix it! Gaining an intimacy anorexia certification allows you to heal broken relationships and help couples restore their relationships.
