AASECT Code of Ethics Explored

Recognizing its responsibilities to society and given its own national and international objectives, the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) has adopted the following Code of Ethics & Conduct (Code). The Code applies to all Certified AASECT members and encompasses any activity that directly or indirectly relates to professional identity or training. The Code does not replace or modify the requirements for or purposes of certification as a sex educator, counselor, therapist or Supervisor.

As a professional association, AASECT has a duty to advocate and enforce both high quality services from and proper conduct/professionalism by its members in order to ensure both. Through setting forth standards of ethical conduct for practice-related conditions, qualities, skills and services, the Code is intended to assist AASECT Certified members with judgments made in the course of their professional services.

Certified members of AASECT, in the conduct of all aspects of their life that relates to their professional work and identity, are expected to honor the Code, and AASECT certification is predicated upon adherence thereto.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:


  • Distinguish between ethical and unethical behavior as outlined by the AASECT Code of Ethics. 
  • Describe at least two ethical dilemmas that may arise in the sexuality field.
  • Explain the implications diagnoses for a forensic population vs a clinical population.


This program meets the requirements of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT) and is approved for 3 CE credits and is considered synchronous learning if in attendance to the live webinar. Participants will be expected to complete a post webinar assignment as part of the completion of the 3 AASECT CE's. These CE credits may be applied toward AASECT certification and renewal of certification through the Sexuality Training Institute. Completion of this program does not ensure or guarantee AASECT Certification. For further information please contact
