Talking with our clients and patients about sex, sexuality, and sexual health does not have to be awkward and uncomfortable. Research shows that most clients are less likely to discuss struggles with sex if the clinician does not ask about this part of their health and well-being. But many clinicians struggle to ask the questions because they are uncomfortable or fear they will say the wrong things. Join us on for this workshop on how to get familiar with having these challenging conversations with our clients and patients
Here’s what we will discuss:
How to ask your clients and patients about sexual health
Tips for successful communication and creating a non-judgmental space through inclusive language
Getting comfortable with uncomfortable words
What to include on your forms
When to refer to a sex therapist, pelvic floor specialist, and other professionals
This will be an online event. Questions and comments are encouraged throughout the workshop. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
In addition, I will be in Anchorage, Alaska for this event. Although the event is online, I will be conducting safe and social distanced consultations on Monday, September 21st for any locals in Anchorage who would like additional information and guidance on this topic. Email me to schedule an appointment.
