Mental Health and Sexuality: How to Talk to your Clients about Sexual Wellness

 

Sexuality is a fundamental human experience inherent in all cultures and present throughout all stages of the human lifespan. Although counselors encounter sexuality concerns frequently in their careers regardless of client population and clinical setting, many counselors report feeling unprepared, uncomfortable, and unconfident to discuss sexual matters with clients. In this lecture, Dr. Megan Speciale provides an introduction to the role of sexual wellness in clients’ mental health and discusses specific strategies for effective and culturally-responsive assessment and intervention of diverse sexuality concerns. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and participate in group discussion. All levels of training, experience, and clinical backgrounds are welcome!
