Content and Aim: People suffering from mental disorders commonly face sexual difficulties such as sexual dysfunction, out-of-control sexual behavior, sexual identity concerns and problems within sexual relationships. Counseling and sexual therapy may be especially challenging in these patients as sexologists usually don’t have enough expertise in approaching mental health conditions while psychiatrists and psychologists are lacking expertise in sexual health issues. Safety concerns related to psychiatric conditions may additionally complicate decisions on therapeutic interventions.

The aim of the webinar is to present a step-by-step perspective of the assessment and clinical management of patients showing with sexual difficulties that may be related to dysregulation of emotion or control over sexual behavior, sexual self-image or the impact on psychopharmacological treatments. Instructive cases will include patients with affective, psychotic or personality disorders and other co-morbid conditions that affect sexual functioning. Diagnostic challenges and treatments will be thoroughly discussed.
Learning objectives: The participants of the webinar will be guided on:

  1. Understanding the mechanisms of sexual difficulties related to mental disorders and their treatments
  2. How to assess the impact of disease-specific and iatrogenic factors on sexual wellbeing
  3. How to formulate effective and safe treatment strategies
  4. Evidence-based interventions in the treatment of sexual dysfunction in psychiatric patients
  5. Holistic approach to sexual and mental health concerns
