About the Event
Cognitive Behavior Institute is excited to welcome Amy Bucciere, LCSW, CST for a live interactive webinar on: Sex Therapy 101 Part 1
Time: 5-7pm EST
Credit Hours: 2 Clinical CEs
Part 1 of Sex Therapy 101 serves as an orientation to the mindset of sex therapy. In part 1, the practitioner will be informed, challenged, and inspired to acknowledge sexuality in their clinical work. Challenges in overcoming cultural taboos in addressing sexuality will be discussed in context (Kleinplatz 2018). Participants will be introduced to the biopsychosocial components of sex therapy. Identification of relevant factors in the biopsychosocial model is a recommended component of treatment for sex dysfunction, such as hypoactive sexual desire (Clayton, et al., 2018). Biopsychosocial assessment can also facilitate needed psychoeducation, identification of targets for intervention, and indicators of potential treatment modalities (Clayton, et al., 2018). Participants will learn how to conduct assessment in sex therapy, common presenting problems in sex therapy, and how to construct a case conceptualization in sex therapy. Aspects of the intersection between identity and sexuality (Ogden, 2018), while be explored. In addition to lecture, the presenter will utilize case presentation and exploration as well as answering participant questions.
5:00-5:05 Introduction and Grounding Rules
5:20-6:50 Sex Therapy Case Conceptualization (Bio-Psycho-Social) Lecture/Discussion
*Program does not include breaks
Participants will explain the biopsychosocial components of sexuality concerns that present for sex therapy.
Participants will identify how these components contribute to case conceptualization.
Amy K. Bucciere, LCSW, CST (she/hers)
It’s all about the space between. Relationships make us who we are. Be it with the past, with individuals, with the future or with one’s own self, skilled and insightful connecting leads to a more fulfilled life. But all sorts of barriers can emerge, and the sexual sort can be especially difficult. I work with individuals, couples, relationship systems and groups to heal and grow the kinds of connections they really want.
I am a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor based in the Pittsburgh area. I specialize in relationships, sex and EMDR, and am certified in each (via Imago Relationship Therapy, AASECT and EMDRIA respectively). I also supervise sex therapists toward certification.

Cognitive Behavior Institute maintains responsibility for content of this program. Social workers, marriage and family therapists, and professional counselors in Pennsylvania can receive continuing education from providers approved by the American Psychological Association. Since CBI is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education, licensed social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed professional counselors in Pennsylvania will be able to fulfill their continuing education requirements by attending CBI continuing education programs. For professionals outside the state of Pennsylvania, you must confirm with your specific State Board that APA approved CE's are accepted towards your licensure requirements. The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) has a process for approving individual programs or providers for continuing education through their Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. ACE approved providers and individual courses approved by ASWB are not accepted by every state and regulatory board for continuing education credits for social workers. Every US state other than New York accepts ACE approval for social workers in some capacity: New Jersey only accepts individually approved courses for social workers, rather than courses from approved providers. The West Virginia board requires board approval for live courses, but accepts ASWB ACE approval for other courses for social workers. For more information, please see https://www.aswb.org/ace/ace-jurisdiction-map/. Whether or not boards accept ASWB ACE approved continuing education for other professionals such as licensed professional counselors or licensed marriage and family therapists varies by jurisdiction. To determine if a course can be accepted by your licensing board, please review your board’s regulations or contact them. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit.
