receive help with expressing sexuality as safely, knowledgeably, and pleasurably as possible across the life course. APA and NASW Codes of Ethics, the World Health Organization, and the U.N. all affirm our clients’ human rights to Recent studies, however, indicate that most medical personnel, couple therapists, and psychotherapists do not broach the subject of clients sexual health. They address sexual topics only if patients or clients bring them up.

Using readings, short lectures, discussion, exercises, and explicit film clips, this class will help practitioners integrate issues of sexuality into individual, and couples therapy. This class will enable the generalist clinician to discuss sexuality more comfortably and competently, to assess clients’ sexual satisfaction, and to make referrals to trained and credentialed sexuality educators, counselors, and therapists, when appropriate. Class size is limited to 45.

Please note that due to the topic of this workshop, sexually explicit materials, including video demonstrations, photographs and diagrams, will be incorporated into the class. No one under the age of 18 will be admitted to this workshop. If you have questions or would like further information, please contact the Professional Development office prior to registering.
