Discussions about why these topics can be challenging for both providers and patients to talk about, include:
● Discussion of sexual shame components
● What that looks like from the clinician's perspective
● What that looks like from the patient's perspective
● Tools to overcome those barriers in order to have all of the above as part of a comfortable conversation and get the full picture of who a patient is and what their real goals are for pelvic health.
● Practical skills for getting more comfortable with talking comfortably with patients and creating a judgment-free space for their healing
Feel comfortable navigating psychosocial nuances while learning practical skills to do so. 

Objectives:

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Participants will be able to list 2 sources of sexual shame that might limit their ability to effectively counsel patients with sexual health concerns.
  • Participants will be able to name 3 different types of lubricant and list a “pro” and a “con” for each of them in order to help with guidance for clients needing to select lubricants for dilators, toys, condoms, or external stimulation.
  • Participants will be able to list 3 precautions for impact play for advising clients on risk-aware behaviors.
