Mission: To foster clinical sexuality practice and research
Member Value: Exchanging knowledge with the smartest minds in clinical sexuality
The Society for Sex Therapy and Research (SSTAR) is an international society founded in 1975. SSTAR is a community of professionals who have clinical and/or research interests in human sexual concerns. Its goals are to facilitate communication among clinicians who treat problems of sexual function, sexual identity, and reproductive life. SSTAR strives to provide a forum for exchange of ideas between those interested in research in human sexuality and those whose primary activities are patient care through annual meetings, fall clinical conferences, membership newsletters, and an e-mail list-serv for members.
SSTAR membership is multidisciplinary. Members must be actively involved in treatment or research of sexual disorders/sexuality and possess superior clinical competence and high ethical standards. Our membership includes professionals in varying disciplines including Psychology, Medicine (including Psychiatry, Ob/Gyn, Urology, Internal Medicine, Family Medicine), Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, Nursing, Sexology and the sciences. This permits an interaction between people of diverse disciplines allowing each to contribute his or her unique perspective. <
