Description:

Addressing cancer directly is a taboo; talking about sex remains a stigma, especially for men.  And neither is helped when there remains a dichotomy between men diagnosed with cancer and those patients receiving any mental health support.  Sadly, even if psychotherapy or psychoeducation are accessible, they rarely provide opportunities for patients to discuss the impacts on sexuality of both cancer and anti-cancer treatments (surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, from “cancer killers” to hormones).  A main contributor is clinician discomfort.  This workshop is intended to improve that comfort in medical and mental health care professionals, in asking, assessing and addressing patients’ sexual concerns.  Presenters and panelists, comprised of sex therapists, cancer survivors or both, will reveal common themes and historical gaps in patient education and truly informed consent with respect to sexuality.  Presenters will provide an array of assessment tips and guides, as well as an overview of common sex therapy treatments, for non-sexologist clinicians to more confidently and competently address this critical, quality-of-life issue for cancer treatment and recovery. 

After attending this course, participants will be able to:

• Discuss the male experience of sexuality and cancer and the concerns historically neglected by medical doctors and clinicians, and develop strategies to improve treatment compliance and outcomes.

• Describe various strategies, and review common treatment models, to increase clinician competency treating this population, specifically those who have experienced and impact on sexual function and relationship satisfaction.
