“Improving outcomes through the integration of sexual health.”

The Harvey Institute is dedicated to helping individuals and organizations integrate sexual health principles and practices to improve personal well-being and rethink their organizational practices.

In 2013, Doug Braun-Harvey and Al Killen-Harvey combined their individual psychotherapy practices with their international training consultation services to form The Harvey Institute.

The Institute promotes sexual health conversations as an essential skill for professionals and the individuals they serve. We offer trainings and workshops for integrating sexual health principles within a wide range of healthcare, human services, law enforcement, and other service organizations. We also provide supervision services for providers treating men with out of control sexual behavior.

We collaborate with individuals, agencies and organizations to develop and implement policies and practices that reflect each systems readiness for sexual health change. It is our belief that a vision for integrating sexual health practices will only be achieved through informed sexual health conversation and collaborative dialogue.
