Course Description

This course is designed to enhance and deepen your knowledge base as you care for patients with sexual dysfunction and help you create a comprehensive toolbox for sexual interviewing, counseling, and troubleshooting techniques to use with your patients.

Note: this coursework does not repeat the sexual knowledge gained in the management courses, but is intended to compliment what you learn in those courses – everything you learned there very much applies! Your grade is determined by a quiz during each module of the course. You are allowed to attempt the quiz multiple times, and it is an open book quiz.


By the end of the course, a successful learner will be able to:

  • Define common terms used to describe sexuality and the sexual experience.
  • Differentiate the physiology of various aspects of sexuality, including arousal, penetration, and orgasm.
  • Name at least 3 questions that can be helpful in performing a thorough, helpful sexual interview.
  • Break down elements of sexual positioning troubleshooting.
  • Examine hormonal impact on sexuality.
  • Investigate how sexuality fluctuates across the age span, as well as considerations that may be needed at various steps along the way.
  • Create homework with and without partner involvement that can be helpful to these patients and enhance your clinical results.
