Clients often present with concerns about their sexuality, but this area may be difficult to discuss for both the therapist and the client. This curriculum provides a thorough review of historical perspectives, physical aspects of sexuality, and typical clinical issues among men and women. Definitions of sexual disorders are discussed from a psychosocial and diagnostic perspective. Issues related to sexual abuse in children and rape are discussed. This course also includes issues related to social definitions of gender (i.e., notions of masculinity and femininity) and their impact on personal identity, marriage and feminist-informed therapy. Issues pertinent to "nonconventional" forms of sex and sexual identity are also described, including issues related to the LGBT community and nonmonogamy.
