A Sex Counseling Service for College Students.
Sarrel, Phillip M.; Sarrel, Lorna J.
The setting up and functioning of a sex counseling service at Yale College is discussed. The service is staffed by a husband and wife, gynecologist and social worker respectively, functioning as a team, with the goal of helping students with any problem relating to sexuality. The sex counseling service was placed within the Mental Hygiene Division of University Health since the psychiatric staff had a good reputation among students. A good response was noted the first year, with a total of 387 cases. The three major categories of problems: (1) requests for birth control; (2) pregnancy; and (3) sexual dysfunction or concern, and the clinic's approach to each are described. A case study is included. The value of a cotherapy team is discussed. The paper concludes with a brief section on campus response. (Author/KJ)
