Effects of Brief Training in Sex Counseling on the Attitudes and Behaviors of Health Professionals.
Mann, Jay; Wallace, Douglas
Many medical and professional schools are now including courses in human sexuality in their curricula. This paper describes a course in sex counseling principles which focuses on the content and process of sex counseling. The course is designed to impart information about human sexual function and dysfunction, and to provide some exposure to the basic methods of treating common sex problems. To accomplish these goals, students are asked to assimilate the information given, and to practice the prescribed home assignments as though they were individuals receiving sex counseling. The approach is based on the belief that positive changes in the counselor's personal comfort with sexuality will enable him or her to respond more objectively to the diverse patterns of sexual behavior encountered in practice. The effects on participants in two presentations of the course are discussed. (Author)
