Content and aim: Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder/Genitopelvic Dysesthesia (PGAD/GPD) affects approximately 4% of individuals of all genders, yet this condition is highly misunderstood. Characterized primarily by persistent, unwanted, and distressing sensations of genital arousal in the absence of sexual desire, those with PGAD/GPD face significant barriers in the health care system. Research has only recently begun to examine symptomatology, psychosocial correlates, physiological contributors, and treatments for PGAD/GPD, and much remains to be discovered about this multifactorial condition. In this course, one of the leading experts on this topic, Prof Caroline Pukall, will discuss the most current diagnostic criteria of PGAD/GPD, empirically based evidence related to factors involved in its development and maintenance, and essential features of a comprehensive assessment and treatment plan for PGAD/GPD.
