SASH Conference

The 2005 SASH Conference was held in San Francisco, California this year.  Around 400 therapists gathered to share ideas and to listen to a vareity of speakers talk about how to create a culture of healthy sexuality.  There were many highlights to this conference including a panel discussion addressing the question of “What is Healthy Sexuality?” Sex Addiction Los Angeles

There was lively discussion around that question and a movement by members of both SASH (Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health) and AASECT (American Association of Sex Educators and Therapists) to come together in a dialogue to look for similarities and ways to build bridges.

I believe that this kind of coming together can only bode well for the profession of psychotherapy and for the future of sex education in this country.
