Webinar Description

Sexual disorders are an often-overlooked class of psychopathology by mental health providers, often due to lack of sufficient clinical training, discomfort with the topic, and transference/countertransference issues in therapy. However, the ubiquitous nature of sexual difficulties, either secondary to another psychopathology, due to a co-morbid medical issue, or the result of the normal aging process, created a strong likelihood that sexual difficulties will go undiagnosed and untreated. 

This presentation will go over common barriers clinicians feel to assessing sexual difficulties, address the relevance of assessing sexual function, even if not a part of the chief complaint, and discuss relevant components to conducting a comprehensive sexual health assessment. The presentation will then discuss treatment modalities that are used in sex therapy and several core skills used in sex therapy.
