Faculty in the MA in Clinical Psychology Theo Burnes, PhD, MSEd, HSPP, LPCC, along with Debra Mollen, Samantha Lee, and Dena M. Abbott, has a recently published article in Counselling Psychology Quarterly.
“Sexuality training in counseling psychology,” details the results of their year-long analysis on sexuality training in LPCC programs. They surveyed from 38 counseling psychology doctoral programs primarily in the United States. The results showed that “relatively few programs offer comprehensive training in sexuality with particular areas such as sex therapy, sexual expression, and reproductive health especially unlikely to be covered.”
The study was motivated by statistics showing that the U.S. has some of the poorest sexual health outcomes in the industrialized world.
