Basic sex therapy

This unit explores the sexual dysfunctions which are identified within DSM V and ICD 10 and assists the participants in exploring how they would engage with clients presenting with these issues. It will consider how pharmacological developments impact upon the psychological treatment of sexual dysfunction. Participants will be encouraged to consider when referrals to specialists, including psychosexual therapists, would be appropriate. Finally, participants will consider how to work with alternative sexual practices, such as BDSM and fetish behaviours.
