Understanding Bestiality and Zoophilia

This talk has been approved by New York State for 2 hours of Continuing Education Credit for LMSWs and LCSWs.

This presentation is based on the book Understanding Bestiality and Zoophilia (2002), which documents Dr. Miletski’s ground-breaking research on this topic.  She gathered data from 82 men and 11 women who volunteered to fill-out a 350-item, anonymous questionnaire.  This resulted in abundant and rich information about the life and sexual behaviors of individuals who have had sexual relations with animals.  Dr. Miletski will describe the treatment case that led to this research, a review of the literature on this subject, the study’s methodology, and the major research findings including support for the hypothesis that humans can have a sexual orientation toward animals.

Hani Miletski is a psychotherapist in private practice in Bethesda, Maryland with over 20 years of clinical experience.  She is certified as a Diplomate of Sex Therapy and as a Sex Therapy Supervisor by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT), has trained and supervised therapists and professionals in the field of human sexuality throughout the world, and has presented at various national and international conferences.  She is the author of Mother-Son Incest: The Unthinkable Broken Taboo Persists, Understanding Bestialtiy and Zoophilia, and a variety of other articles and chapters in the professional literature.  She is a licensed clinical social worker and has a Doctorate in Human Sexuality from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality.  Dr. Miletski was born in Israel and served in the Israeli Defense Forces as an officer before coming to the US at the age of 24.
