Sexual Health Assessment and Treatment in Clinical Practice

Summary

The objective of this training is to help mental health professionals develop confidence and a skill set for discussing sexual identity, health/wellness, and intimacy with their clients. Fundamentals of sex therapy from a biopsychosocial approach will be covered to ensure that participants feel well-equipped to incorporate sexual functioning into their core approach to assessment and treatment. The learner will understand the ramifications of relegating this topic to a "specialized" treatment approach and feel skilled and capable in addressing sex therapy topics as a foundational approach to assessment and treatment.

Objectives

  • Identify at least three reasons to incorporate sexual health assessment into general mental health treatment.
  • Apply common assessment questions in practice to understand history and underlying issues associated with sexual concerns.
  • Describe the relationship between trauma experiences and common difficulties associated with sexual intimacy and health.
