Re-Thinking Infidelity

On June 7, 2015, in Denver Sex Therapy, by drneilcannon1

Yesterday in Minneapolis I had the privilege of introducing my friend, Esther Perel, to 600 sex therapists for her key note plenary address.  We were attending the annual international conference for the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors & Therapists (AASECT).  AASECT is the leading certification body in the world for clinical and educational aspects of human sexuality.

Esther not only packed the house, but she shook it!  I have never seen any other speaker at this event receive such a long and enthusiastic standing ovation following her speech.  Esther is the author of the best-seller, Mating in Captivity and now has more than 7 million views on her two Ted Talks.  Esther is a true thought-leader on the subject of eroticism.

She may not be Bill Clinton, but she is definitely one of the most important people in the field of sexuality.  Dr. Patti Britton is the Immediate Past President of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).  www.aasect.org. Past President’s of AASECT read like the “Who’s Who” of sexuality professionals.  AASECT is the leading organization that certifies sex therapists throughout the world.  As I was thinking about the honor of having Dr. Britton appear on our show, I couldn’t help but think back to the elation I felt the day I learned that my 75 page application to become an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist was approved by the certification committee.  In addition to adherence to a strict code of ethics, AASECT Certified Sex Therapists are required to meet a long list of educational, experiential and clinical requirements.  Few people are better equipped to discuss any sexual concern than Certified Sex Therapist, Dr. Patti Britton.  I hope you will join us for what promises to be an excellent show.  For more about the show: www.sexandintimacyshow.com.   To learn more about Dr. Patti Britton: http://www.yoursexcoach.com/
