Membership of the Society of Australian Sexologists Ltd has many benefits including professional development opportunities, industry networking, accreditation and non-accreditation pathways, and exclusive offers.
Practitioners who have pursued the accreditation pathway, have undergone further study and professional practice to meet criteria demonstrating specific skills in Pyschosexual Therapy or Sexuality Education.
The Society of Australian Sexologists (SAS) provides an accreditation pathway for sexologists wanting to work as a psychosexual therapist or sexuality educator. 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 Relationships Therapists (COSRT) in the United Kingdom. The Society offers accreditation at the standards of Clinical and Provisional. Self-regulation through accreditation ensures a higher level of professionalism in psychosexual therapy and sexuality education.
Sexology is a multidisciplinary field and our members reflect this, coming from a diverse range of professional and personal backgrounds. Our featured member is randomly selected from members who have chosen to pursue both accreditation and non-accreditation pathways to give you an insight into who we are and what we do.
