Specialization Tracks

Specialization Tracks

At NISHW we’ve created a program model that allows for an additional certification to be completed while completing the field experience during your practicum and internships for the certification programs you’ve chosen in sex therapy or sexuality counseling. Those who chose this option receive the specialized certification for half the price.

Don’t want to complete a full certification program or you’ve already completed a certification program with another program or institution? You can take the specialization certification as a stand-alone certification.

Specialization tracks with NISHW include 10 hours of consultation/supervision prior to completion. Specialty tracks can be completed in-person totaling 40 hours for a week- long training or via online/asynchronous learning for 60 clock hours/credits and completion of an oral defense.

The following are a few of the specialization tracks that will be available with NISHW starting in 2022:

Academic Requirements:


Clinical Work

Your current work in the field counts as your field work.

Oral Defense

This is required for those who tack speciality tracks online. You will be responsible for completing documentation required to sit for oral defense with the instructor once supervision has been completed.


There are ten hours of supervision/consultation included in your speciality track to assist with implementation of knowledge.


NISHW would like to celebrate this major accomplishment with a graduation ceremony for students who complete the program. Graduation will occur in the Spring and Fall of each year starting in 2023 when the first graduates will complete the program. Applications for graduation will be required. More info to come.


The cost of the various specialization certification tracks through NISHW has NOT been finalized.
