Healing the Body & the Mind During the “#MeToo” Era: Effective Treatment of Women’s Sexual and Pelvic Pain
Clinical research has shown a link between “me too” experiences and various chronic health problems in women, including pelvic and sexual pain. This online course will train participants to treat women reporting a “me too” experience (like sexual trauma, sexual harassment, etc.) and those reporting pelvic and sexual pain. Clinicians will learn how to conduct a culturally competent assessment which is sensitive to “me too” experiences, as well as microaggression based on gender, sexual orientation, nationality, disability status, etc.
The connection between Genito-Pelvic Pain/Penetration Disorder and co-occurring psychiatric disorders such as PTSD, depression and generalized anxiety disorder will be emphasized. Evidence-based treatments for women presenting with pelvic and sexual pain will be presented in addition to appropriate therapeutic interventions for trauma-related disorders resulting from these experiences. Interviews with a pelvic floor physical therapist and registered dietician are included. Detailed case-studies will be presented.
This online course provides 2.5 AASECT CEs for professionals.
