I am grateful to have been introduced to this program. Dr. Weiss is very easy to understand, and I am hoping to become more and more proficient in this area.

I simultaneously completed my Master's degree and the AASAT course in April of 2009. I opened a private practice in May of 2009 and set up supervision with Dr. Doug Weiss from July through December of that year. Upon fulfillment of the supervision, Dr. Weiss certified me as a sexual recovery therapist through AASAT. My goal was to provide well-informed and effective therapy to people struggling with sex addiction. The goal was accomplished and continues to be accomplished. The course and supervision provided invaluable knowledge and techniques that I have applied diligently in working with people. Results have been dramatic and rewarding. I have had the privilege of journeying with hundreds of people in their healing from sex addiction. In addition, the training helped me to work with the partners of sexually addicted people. As both husband and wife recover, marriages reconcile and I experience a deep sense of fulfillment in being part of the process. I would encourage anyone thinking about taking the course to put your thoughts into action. It is worth it! If anyone is taking this course in the Winnipeg, Manitoba area, let me know and we will team up to help more people in this province.

The AASAT has been very helpful in further defining the approach I take with persons caught in the sex addiction web. The best approach that I have come upon and it fits with what I have learned over the years. The benefits have been many - I fit pieces of the training into other areas of counseling as well, eg. the 6 Behavior Structures for a healthy marriage relationship.
