Down Under: What Sex Therapists Should Know About the Pelvic Floor



Sexual therapists and educators recognize the importance of awareness and function of the pelvic floor in sexual enhancement, as well as the role pelvic floor dysfunction may play in sexual problems. Yet, without a clear understanding of pelvic floor anatomy, behavioral counseling related to the pelvic floor may be limited.

This two-hour teleclass is designed to educate counselors, therapists, and educators with a limited medical background, in the basic anatomy and function of the pelvic floor. The anatomy of the pelvic floor will be reviewed in detail and normal pelvic floor functioning in sexual activity will be elucidated. In addition, the functions of the pelvic floor will be reviewed and explained. The role of the pelvic floor in sexual pain disorders and other sexual problems will be addressed and relevant research will be cited.

Download the teleclass and listen at your convenience.
