Comfort-Inducing Sexuality Dialogue (CISD)

After talking with thousands of individuals about sex for over 30 years, certified sex therapist Kimberly Resnick Anderson has developed her own clinical model to facilitate comfort when discussing sexual material with clients. Her model, Comfort-Inducing Sexuality Dialogue (CISD), incorporates the following:

  • Ability to interpret early sexual experiences and messages as powerful legacies
  • Ability to use clinical examples to help normalize common sexual experiences and concerns
  • Comprehensive knowledge base of human sexual response and components of sexual identity
  • Environment that depathologizes sexual differences and unconventional interests
  • Humor
  • Psycho-Education
  • Respect for the meaning of sexuality to one’s self esteem and gender identity
  • Sending a clear message that sexuality is important in peoples’ lives
  • Taking a strategic sexual history that allows people to respond in an uninhibited, honest manner
  • Unshakeable belief that talking about sex in a therapeutic setting can be profoundly liberating and life-changing

Professional Therapy Never Includes Sex

Sex therapy never requires the removal of clothing or touching between therapist and client. Provocative subject material may be discussed; and intimate topics may be explored, but professional therapy never includes any sexual contact.
