Through BEDROOM eyes:

Client Sexual Concerns Made Easy

Presented By:  Jane Guyn PhD, RN


The truth is that client sexual concerns can (and should) be addressed simply and with compassion during many typical therapy sessions. Using an easy to understand matrix, every clinician can begin to deconstruct client sexual concerns and figure out best next steps in dealing with these concerns. This workshop is the first step on your path to feeling comfortable and willing to talk about client sexual concerns with ease.


Participants will:

  1. Learn how to help clients feel comfortable sharing the sexual conflicts they are having within marriages or other committed relationships.

  2. Develop clarity about common concerns such as uneven desire, lack of libido, erectile dysfunction, infidelity, masturbation, sex during infertility treatment and body image issues

  3. Understand the causes and treatment of sexual pain so that they can support clients who experience this debilitating issue.

  4. Get a sense of where they stand on issues such as pornography, fetishes, erotic power play, or polyamory and how to deal with sexually diverse populations with compassion.

  5. Know a little bit about sex after treatment for cancer.

  6. Figure out appropriate suggestions for their clients so that they can improve their relationship (and even give some targeted home assignments).

  7. Know when to make a referral to a sex specialist without making the client feel ashamed or humiliated.

  8. Go home with a list of resources that they can use to deepen their understanding of the BEDROOM™ approach to dealing with client sexual concerns.
