This training will introduce participants to medical and psychological realities of genital pain disorders and of unconsummated marriages. According to leading research, the prevalence of women who experience vaginal pain is 9.3%, but the figure is even higher (up to 13%) for women between the ages of 20 and 30. For some, this will be a temporary gripe. For others, it may be a longer-lasting condition. It is imperative that therapists have the tools necessary to identify this need, diagnose the disorders, and have some idea as to the treatment of these conditions. The course will cover the biological mechanisms of sexual functioning, sexual pain, and penetration problems. It will also introduce practical tools and intervention techniques for treatment of genital pain disorders and unconsummated marriages. Participants will review and discuss 1-2 clinical case studies.
