Dr. Bowman developed the Sexual Addiction Treatment Provider program in 2011 at MidAmerica Nazarene University, and it remains the only sexual addiction training for mental health professionals that is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and recognized by the United States Department of Education.
Dr. Bowman received his doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Oklahoma State University in 2008 and has been practicing professional counseling since that time. During his time at OSU from 2003-2007, he served as the Director of the Nazarene Student Center.
He continues to write and present locally, nationally, and internationally on topics related to sexual health and sexually addictive behavior, including the publication of his first book, Angry Birds & Killer Bees: Talking to Your Kids About Sex (Beacon Hill Press, 2013). Currently, he is working as the editor and primary author for the Christian textbook Reclaiming Sexual Wholeness for Harper Collins.
In addition to his specialized work assessing, diagnosing, and treating adults and adolescents with sexual addictions and attachment-related concerns, Dr. Bowman has specialized training in stress management, anxiety reduction, and other affective regulation methods, as well as psychological assessment. He operates from a relational existential Christian-integration perspective in his work and regularly incorporates attachment, developmental, and neurobiological perspectives as appropriate.
