George Turner , a certified sex therapist in Kansas City, received a doctorate degree in human sexuality education during the commencement ceremony at Widener University (Philadelphia) on May 12, 2012. Dr. Turner’s dissertation, “Social-Sexual Voice of Adults with Mild Intellectual Disabilities: A Qualitative Study” was awarded, “The Outstanding Dissertation Award”. In addition, he was nominated for “The William R. Stayton Award for Applied Leadership in Human Sexuality”. His research was grounded in viewing adults with ID as whole persons capable of richly connected, social-sexual lives. Dr. Turner sought to elucidate participants’ voices, and in the process confirmed that adults with ID desire love, intimacy and pleasure, but face staggering obstacles that keep them isolated, vulnerable, and lonely.


Dr. George Turner is a leading sex and relationship expert. As a sex educator, researcher and therapist, he has helped countless couples build healthier relationships, improve their sex lives, and achieve a deeper level of emotional intimacy. As one of the area leaders in sexual health and sexuality education, Dr. Turner has a unique clinical expertise to offer his patients. Dr. Turner has been a long-time advocate, clinician and now researcher on disabilities and sexuality. His research looked at the typically overlooked personal stories of individuals with intellectual disabilities. He plans to take his research and present at national conventions for special education teachers, social workers and sexuality professionals. Additionally, it is his hope to publish in several professional journals to engage professionals in an often difficult discourse on the topic of disability and pleasure, safety, and self-determination.


Dr. Turner is in private practice as a certified sex therapist. His clinic, Turner Professional Group located at 4010 Washington, Kansas City, Mo. is holistic, spa-like practice, specializing in relationship enhancement, sexual health and personal wellness. George has operated his clinic near the Plaza with his business partner, Lisa Meyers, who is also a certified sex therapist, since 2003.
