At Westland Academy of Clinical Sex Therapy, we provide accessible and innovative clinical sex therapy education that balances real-world therapeutic concerns, evidence-based practice, and the voices of populations served.
If you are a trained mental health or health care professional (or currently enrolled in training) AND want to expand your knowledge around sex-based concerns, sexuality, and sexual dysfunction, you’re in the right place.
Principles of Westland Academy
These are the principles we built the Westland Academy of Clinical Sex Therapy upon. Every decision we make has to pass the values test. Here is what they mean to us.
We work with a team of enthusiastic graduate and undergraduate students who are searching high and low for the newest and most cutting-edge research and techniques, as well as consult with experts and advocates around the world to offer the most up-to-date information available in new online and interactive ways. We have consulted with adult education specialists and online learning experts to make sure our programs provide a comprehensive, but digestible, learning experience for all.
Our goal is to expand the amount of practitioners providing informed and sex-positive services to the public which also means expanding the reach of this information outside of traditional academia. Inclusivity also means ensuring the voices of the populations we serve are represented in our programs. As part of program development we have conducted focus groups with individuals impacted by the concerns we aim to support and have incorporated their feedback and suggestions into our materials.
By using an online platform and affordable pricing, we are able to to provide quality training and education to clinicians and practitioners around the world who may not have access to local specialized clinical training. We also believe in charging reasonable prices so those that want to learn, can access training without going into debt to do it. Increased accessibility in turn, raises the general public’s accessibility to qualified and knowledgeable mental health/health care professionals in their area. It’s a win-win all around.
