Sex Under the Influence: Substance Abuse and Sexuality. CE 3 (Recorded Webinar)


"Recorded webinars will only be accessible for 30 days after purchase"

Substance abuse can create particular sexual issues and problems that last even after a person is in recovery, yet most substance abuse treatment does not include much in the way of sexual recovery, and most sex therapists know little about substance abuse. This webinar will explore these issues historically as well as giving an overview of the current climate and the most common direct concerns.

By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Describe the changing nature of Western cultural values and the treatment that has arisen from these values.
  • Discuss some common treatment philosophies and modalities in both sexuality and substance abuse fields.
  • Identify some common sexual issues for clients in recovery.
  • Identify sexual issues with drugs commonly used in SA treatment.
  • Issues for LGBT people in substance abuse treatment.
