This two-part webinar explores social attitudes toward aging and sex, with an emphasis on giving participants an opportunity to create their own dynamic mind sets of what constitutes vital sexual experience for themselves, their loved ones and clients. Participants will uncover surprising and attractive qualities and opportunities frequently found in the sex lives of aging people. Finally, significant time will be devoted to steps to help optimize late-life sexual health, experience and fulfillment.
