Pain, Pleasure, and Desire: A Holistic Approach to Female Sexual Dysfunction
Mieke Rivka Sidorsky, LCSW-C
Psychotherapist, Rivka Sidorsky, LLC
Synopsis: This training will introduce therapists to the treatment of female sexual dysfunctions. Approximately 45% of women suffer from a sexual dysfunction during their lifetime, so it is imperative that therapists have the tools necessary to identify this need, diagnose the disorders, and have some idea as to the treatment of the major dysfunctions. The course will cover three important areas of multi-dimensional assessment of female sexual function including: introduction to female sexual response; introduction to the holistic approach to female sexual functioning, diagnostic criteria for the disorders, and introduction to the treatment of desire and pain. Using the diagnostic criteria in DSM-5 and tools for assessment, therapists will review and discuss 2-3 clinical case studies.
Upon completion of this workshop participants will:
1. Learn about three multidimensional areas of assessment of female sexual functioning
2. Learn the diagnostic criteria for female sexual dysfunctions
3. Be introduced to the treatment of desire and pain disorders
