Psychopathology: Theory and Practice
13 February 2020 – Marian O’Connor
Clients in psychotherapy may be happy to talk about relationship problems, but may find it difficult to talk about psychosexual concerns. Should psychotherapists encourage clients to open up about sexual difficulties? Is there a danger that talking about sex might stimulate erotic transference or voyeurism or expose the therapist’s ignorance about sexual functioning. This lecture will look at some of the blocks that might prevent the client or therapist talking about sex and will also provide information about sexual anatomy and common psychosexual dysfunctions.
