Treating the Two Most Common Female Sexual Complaints: Orgasm Issues and Diminished Desire (3 CEs)
Presenter: Laurie Mintz, Ph.D.
8/13/2021 2:00 PM - 5:15 PM EST

Diminished desire and difficulty orgasming with a partner are the two most prevalent concerns women bring to health-care providers. Additionally, evidence indicates that many women struggle with these concerns, yet only reveal this to clinicians upon being directly asked. Unfortunately, however, too few clinicians have any training in assessing or dealing with these common sexual concerns, even though empirically supported treatments for both exist. This seminar will help you understand the cultural reasons for the high prevalence of these sexual problems among women. You will also become well-versed in the myriad medical, individual, and relational causes underlying both concerns. Most importantly, evidence-based treatments for both diminished desire and orgasm issues will be presented. You will leave this seminar able to assess and intervene with these two common sexual concerns.
