Anne McBean, MA, was honored with the first Faculty Mentor Award presented by the PHS postdoctoral fellows at the Family Medicine and Community Health Commencement on June 10, 2009. McBean was unanimously selected as the inaugural honoree for her constant support and advocacy. Graduating postdoctoral fellow, Katie Spencer, PhD, presented the award. She said of McBean, "Not only does she provide excellent supervision and training in the Compulsive Sexual Behavior program, but she often makes herself available to post-docs for support, guidance, and mentorship in multiple areas of personal and professional growth. She is a strong voice for balance during the challenges of the intensive training of the fellowship. Her support, opinions, and sound clinical judgment are deeply appreciated by each of the fellows."
McBean has provided clinical training and supervision for postdoctoral fellows since 1996. She said, "I thoroughly enjoy working with the post docs and consider it one of the most rewarding parts of my work." McBean is a graduate of Carleton College and received her MA in counseling psychology from the University of Minnesota in 1985. She is a licensed psychologist, a licensed marriage and family therapist, an instructor, and the coordinator of the Compulsive Sexual Behavior Treatment Program at PHS. Although she has been involved in all of the clinical programs at the Center for Sexual Health, her particular areas of expertise are the treatment of compulsive sexual behavior, sexual dysfunction, sex offender treatment, sexual abuse trauma, sexual orientation confusion/dysphoria, adolescent sexual concerns, parenting concerns around child sexuality issues, and couples concerns. She assists in training medical students in addressing sexual concerns. She is a certified Level II Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing practitioner. She has been involved in a variety of sexual health endeavors since her undergraduate years, and has had experience over the years in early childhood education, a variety of therapeutic services for adolescents, emergency and short term services for all ages, inpatient and outpatient therapy for compulsive sexual behavior, abuse recovery, the treatment of eating disorders, and various concerns regarding identity, dependency, and relationships. McBean has been instrumental in developing the compulsive sexual behavior treatment approach at the Center for Sexual Health and in training staff and post-doctorate fellows in this approach. She has presented trainings and workshops for both local and national audiences on the assessment and treatment of compulsive sexual behavior, compulsive sexual behavior in women, sexual issues for adolescents, and general sexuality counseling skills.
