September is sexual health awareness month. Engaging in consensual, safe and pleasurable sexual experiences can contribute to a sense of fulfilment, joy and general well-being. However, many healthcare professionals are unprepared to navigate such sensitive, intimate client taboos, cultural and religious values, and lack of information and education around the topic can impede our ability to have an empowering discussion with clients on their sexual health.
Join us for this introductory experiential talk and discover:
- Barriers that may impede our ability to have an open dialogue on sexual health in our practice
- Six principles of sexual health and PLISSIT model as an approach to discussing sexual issues
- Possible application of the PLISSIT model to promote empowering dialogue with clients
