Sexuality in Later Life: Navigating the Challenges of Changing Bodies
Daniel Watter, Ed.D.
As people are living longer, concerns about quality of life have taken on an increasingly prominent place in the lives of our patients. One of the most frequently expressed concerns/frustrations with aging is how to manage the sexual changes that naturally occur in an aging body. Such concerns have implications for both levels of self-esteem and relationship/intimacy maintenance and enhancement. This presentation will address the myriad of sexual dilemmas facing our aging patients, as well as suggest strategies the practicing psychologist can employ when working with such patients.
- 1. At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to identify the sexual concerns common to aging psychotherapy patients.
- 2. Participants will be able to apply treatment strategies based on an existential-humanistic treatment model.
- 3. Participants will be able to analyze the ethical conflicts presented in our current focus of treatment for this population.
This program is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and graduate students. It will be presented at an intermediate level, meant for those with some prior knowledge of the subject matter.
The presenter does not have any commercial support and/ or conflict for interest for this program
