A Mind of Its Own: Understanding, Treating, and Grieving Erectile Dysfunction in Therapy
Problems with sexual functioning are often very difficult for clients to bring up in session. Indeed, many struggling with erectile issues may not even address these concerns with medical providers, much less their therapist. Problems with erection not only affect a client's sexual life, but their romantic relationships, body image and sense of masculinity. The causes of erectile dysfunction are varied- from medical complications and aging to anxiety and a consequence of compulsive behavior. This presentation aims to look at both the psychological factors which may complicate erectile difficulties, but also how to address feelings of shame, anger, and grief related to both ongoing issues and new loss of functioning.
Learning Objective #1: Participants will be able to list 2 non-medical causes of erectile dysfunction.
