Activity Objectives:

Sexual Health Counseling, 2nd Edition is organized by Western Schools and will be held from May 23, 2016 - Dec 31, 2019.

Course Description:
Clinicians must be prepared to approach discussions of sexual health in a professional, open, knowledgeable, and appropriate manner that allows clients to discuss their concerns without fear of shame or disapproval. However, research indicates that the majority of mental health providers do not receive any training in sexual health assessment or treatment. This intermediate-level course describes ways of talking with clients about sexual topics and offers frameworks for sexual health assessment and models for intervention. The course discusses professional conduct and the importance of taking a proactive approach to a client's sexual health. Theoretical perspectives are described, including the bio-psycho-social-cultural perspective, the sexual health model framework, and the ecological systems model of sexual health.

The course provides information on sexual behaviors in children and adolescents and, in a useful chart format, differentiates behaviors that are normative from behaviors that are concerning. Clinical practices are discussed, such as determining conditions for treatment and gathering sexual health information. The discussion of sexual dysfunction and sex therapy treatment includes a description of the sexual response cycle. Sexual health diagnoses such as sexual abuse, gender dysphoria, sexual addiction and compulsions, and paraphilias are described. This course is designed for marriage and family therapists, and counselors who seek to better assist clients with sexual health issues.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
