Sexuality through the Lifespan:  How Therapists Can Support the Sexual Health of Those They Serve

This workshop will educate therapists on the importance of sexual health on the overall satisfaction and well-being of the people they serve from cradle to the grave. Therapists will learn what they can do to feel comfortable and support communication and dialogue with their clients about sexuality.   

Goals:

  • To demystify sex therapy and the role of sex therapist
  • To educate therapists on the importance of sexual health throughout the lifespan
  • To assist non-sex therapists in understanding their critical role as front line providers and gatekeepers for sexual health and growth for their clients and what they can do
  • To encourage open dialogue between therapists and clients about sexuality and sexual health
  • To learn how therapists can assist clients in achieving better sexual health and satisfaction
  • To provide exercises for therapists to open up dialogue about sexuality and sexual health
  • To provide a resource list for therapists for continued learning
