Using Third Wave Cognitive Therapies for Sexual Health Problems

During this course, participants will practice techniques from third wave cognitive therapies to address sexual dysfunctions and barriers to intimacy by engaging in role plays, after giving a clinical demonstration of a sex history. Participants will learn how to tailor approaches to individual clients, ensuring they can adapt successfully when needed. Factors like race, culture, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and other identity markers will be explored during the course. The goal is to ensure participants are well-equipped to work with a wide range of clients by promoting a culturally responsive understanding and greater adaptability when treating a variety of clients in diverse clinical settings. Additionally, special attention is paid to the challenges and limitations associated with certain populations, treatment settings, methodologies, techniques, and models. Overall, this course incorporates various clinical methods, integrating them into various sexual counseling and sex therapy models, while also examining the impact of multidimensional influences as part of the sexual health paradigm.
