CHECK IF IOSS IS WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR: IOSS CORE VALUES & MISSION
THINKING DIFFERENTLY AND CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO
Through IOSS we want to connect with people with whom we share the same core values.
People who care about their clinical knowledge and skills in sexology; who want to do the best for their clients and make the difference in the community of sexual health care providers. We want to connect with sexual health providers who strongly believe in the value of continuous education.
As professionals, we can’t attend many meetings each year or learn from all the experts we would like to, due to several reasons. Some of us have financial constraints or are not able to travel. This can be very frustrating for people like us, who believe that ongoing education and personal development define who we are. That’s exactly the challenging aim of IOSS: to bring leading experts close to you through the Internet. But the value of the project is not only that. We aim to create connections among sexual healthcare providers that share a feeling of respect and love for their profession.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WE CAN MEET YOUR NEEDS?
Because we were in your same situation and we struggled to build our competence. Because we know the feeling of being aware of what is exciting to learn or to share, but not being able to reach it.
Now, after years of studying, researching, attending the main conferences and meeting the people who made the difference in our field, we built a strong network of specialists who share our values and are willing to collaborate with us. That’s why we are able to offer you the best to fulfill your thirst of inspiration and scientific updating at an advanced level. We are able to select lecturers that will generously share their clinical experience. That will change your clinical practice right away. That will inspire you and give you new ideas after one session. With IOSS you will not be disappointed by lectures that cannot keep up with what their titles imply. We take care of each and every one webinar or supervision, in order to make sure we satisfy your needs for clinically useful knowledge.
WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF IOSS?
Our core drives are the same as yours:
- Being knowledgeable
- Being skilled
- Being professional
We will continue selecting for you the coolest topics and the main influencers in modern sexology. We will choose those leading experts who think out of the box and bring new clinical ideas worth spreading. Let us inspire your learning process and share our viewpoints. Be part of the precious network who believes that this profession is special in bringing happiness and health to other people!
WHICH GROUP DO WE BELONG TO?
We do not belong to those that aim to make profit out of clinical concepts or educational products. We definitely do not belong to the people who put business and money at the first place of their priorities. Nothing against that, but it is a different life. All income that arises from our services is invested to the production of more and better educational material.
We are among those who love their job and it is meaningful for their life. We feel proud to do it in the best way we can. This is our reward: to share competence among sexual health care providers.
WHY IS OUR FACULTY SPECIAL?
In IOSS, you will find speakers who are selected for their expertise and their knowledge in the specific topic. We choose the IOSS faculty for clinical experience, research achievement, innovation, and leadership vision.
We ask renowned colleagues to join our project because of their impact in determining progress in the field of clinical sexology.
In addition, we appreciate their empathy, intellectual honesty, cultural sensitivity, and ability in interacting with patients and colleagues in a respectful and non-judgmental way. However, they are available to learn from each other and to put their ideas in discussion, despite the fact that they are high in the list of top-experts. You will find a great amount of these characteristics in each of them and, as a customer of our services, you will always have space for questions and comments.
HELP US TO MAKE IT BETTER!
Your feedback is highly valued. IOSS is a pioneer initiative in the area of international online clinical supervision, and that’s why we are willing to learn. The project is young, and we want to get your opinion in improving our profile.
IOSS aims to be your new training room, and we would like to make you feel comfortable and happy with what you get from it. After attending a supervision session, a webinar or a course, please take two minutes and write us your view or further needs to be met.
Also, we will be very thankful if you may wish to appear within IOSS testimonials sending us a short video or a few lines with your picture, rating your experience with us, the quality of the service, and the relevance for your clinical practice or updating. It will help other colleagues in linking with the IOSS community.
