What is an accredited sexologist?
The Society of Australian Sexologists Ltd (SAS) has developed evidence-based guidelines for the accreditation of sexologists who work as psychosexual therapists, sex therapists, and sexuality educators. The accreditation standards of the Society are comparable to the standards set by such international accreditation bodies as American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in the United States, and the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) in the United Kingdom. The Society offers accreditation of professional sexologists at the standards of Clinical and Provisional. Self-regulation through accreditation ensures a higher level of professionalism in sexology.
Upcoming sexology events / training
Our vision is to support and enhance the practice of professionals working in the areas of sexology and sexual health with the aim to promote the positive integration of sexuality into people’s lives. Throughout the year each state branch hosts regular clinical meetings, professional development opportunities, and members peer supervision both in person and online, to strengthen knowledge and practice within the field of sexology. Each year the national branch holds a 2-day symposium open to the public providing a boutique training experience that showcases the diversity and professionalism of our members.
