This 3.0 hour workshop is intended for practicing psychotherapists who may encounter sexological issues in their practice. This presentation will present the core knowledge and competences of sex therapists allowing psychotherapists to discern when clients will benefit from a referral and present the scope of practice of other providers who can support clients through sexological issues (GYN, Urologists, PTs, Psych, etc).
This program will cover a variety of topics to assist participants in feeling a greater degree of comfort and competence when assessing clients for sexological issues that impact their presenting problem, or are expressed as satellite concerns. Specifically, this program will cover topics of assessment, trauma-informed responses, and the normalcy and diversity of sexual experiences. Additionally, the program will present sexological issues as an intersystem challenge and assist participants in identifying personal bias and the need for referral when necessary.
