Course Description: When a client brings up a sexual issue do you feel confident and
prepared? If not, you’ll fit in with data showing that clients broach sexual topics (or
need to) in 70% of cases; participating therapists state they don’t feel prepared.
What are the most common sexual complaints? Find out, plus when to ask a client
about sex, how to assess and address sex issues as part of overall treatment, when to
refer the client for medical or sex therapy help, what is (and how to find) a qualified
sex therapist, and more! Self-awareness, information, and skills will allow you to
add or limit sexual treatment to your personal and professional comfort level, to
create a safe space for sexual issues to be presented, and to serve clients with
compassion and effectiveness.
