Intentional Vibe Trauma Treatment (IVTT), based on Intentional Vibe Theory (IVT), is an emerging treatment model developed specifically for the treatment of systemic abuse and complex trauma sequences. IVTT targets the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of Abuse-Victim-Trauma-Existing-Realities, AVT-ER, and offers human beings and survivor-centered communities a conscious way of attempting to move the organic will and empathy of human beings towards justice, truth, and health.
Unlike traditional treatment models, DSTT:
Remedies the victim-blaming and diagnostic mislabeling of deceptive sexuality victims and survivors.
Designates a name for the abuse disorder associated with deceptive sexuality.
Provides effective treatments for abusers, victims, and the relationships injured by deceptive sexuality.
Helps mental health professionals address the abusive impacts of deceptive sexuality.
Be a Better Man is a live webinar that provides psychoeducation for men who want to better understand how maintaining a secret sexual life is a psychological operation of abuse and harm that causes traumatic injuries and symptoms to the intimate partner, children, and family. This program helps men see more clearly this system of entitlement, covert abuse, and the harm to other people. Dr. Minwalla’s curated content ultimately encourages men to become more conscious and accept the responsibility of mature masculinity to attend to the self, and particularly those who have been harmed, better. The program involves two courses that must be taken in sequence; 1) Be a Better Man 1: The Illumination Course; and; 2) Be a Better Man 2: The Application Course.
The Institute for Sexual Health (ISH) is the official resource for education, professional trainings, and certification in Deceptive Sexuality and Trauma Treatment (DSTT). Founded in 2009 by Dr. Minwalla, the ISH was one of the first and only U.S. treatment centers to challenge the “co-sex addict” model and articulate the systemic abuse associated with infidelity and compulsive sexual behavior disorder.
The Institute for Sexual Health (ISH) is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Institute for Sexual Health maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

His grounded theory of Deceptive Sexuality and Trauma Treatment (DSTT) not only establishes a new standard of care for the treatment of infidelity, compulsive sexual behavior disorders, and sex addiction, but shines a light on a unique method for the treatment of systemic abuse, injustice and complex trauma, called Intentional Vibe Trauma Treatment (IVTT).
