Content and aim: Sex in a multi-tasking world has become distracted, pressured, and unsatisfying. Rates of sexual dysfunction in men and women are high, and discrepant sexual desire in couples represents one of the most common causes for seeking sex therapy. For women, the update of flibanserin, the only FDA and Health Canada approved desire drug, has been low. Mindfulness meditation, defined as present-moment, non-judgmental awareness, has become a prominent tool in Western healthcare for a wide range of medical and psychological ailments, from pain to anxiety to heart-rate regulation. In this course, I will briefly share the science evaluating the efficacy of mindfulness for a variety of sexual health issues in women. This talk will consider also the purported mechanisms by which mindfulness is likely improving sex. Finally, we will consider how practitioners can integrate mindfulness into their own sexual health practices, and their own lives.
Learning Objectives: This intermediate instructional course is designed to help clinicians:
