Sexual Wellbeing: Why It Matters for Individuals Who Cause Harm

Hosted by: David Prescott
Guest Speaker: Jane Fleishman, PhD, MEd, MS

Recorded on: January 12, 2023
Length: One Hour

Promoting consensual sexual relationships can be a challenge, particularly in the context of working with clients who have a history of problem sexual behaviors. Bringing discussions of healthy sexuality and positive, non-coercive, and pleasurable sexual expression to our clients necessitates candor and a comprehensive sexuality education approach. Using a public health model which incorporates sexual health, sexual pleasure, sexual wellbeing, and sexual justice (Mitchell et al., 2021) and the Circles of Sexuality model (Dailey, 1981), we can offer our clients an opportunity to develop the tools they need for consensual sexual and intimate relationships.

This session offers participants the most up-to-date research on effectiveness of comprehensive sexuality education, two models of comprehensive sexuality education for psychoeducational groups, ample time for application of these approaches, and the opportunity for frank discussion about the challenges our clients face.
