Interventions for Sexual Issues and Dysfunctions

To prepare for this assignment:

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Think about the approaches to sex therapy that are discussed and how the approaches might impact a couple in couples therapy and/or sex therapy.
  • Review the Case 2 provided in this week’s Discussion. Consider the sexual therapy interventions that might be applied in this case with the following caveats:
    • The Wilsons have had limited sexual activity over the past year, although they report feeling sexually attracted to one another.
    • Mrs. Wilson reported sexual abuse as a child. Now that her daughter is the age she was when the abuse began, she is beginning to remember more details of her abuse, which is having an impact on her ability to enjoy her sexual relationship with her husband.
    • Mrs. Wilson’s gynecologist recently diagnosed her with vaginismus.
  • Consider the challenges you might encounter using sexual therapy interventions with the Wilsons.

The assignment: (1?2 pages)

  • Compare two sexual therapy interventions you would suggest for the Wilsons in consideration of the above caveats, explaining the similarities and differences of these interventions.
  • Describe at least one challenge for each of the interventions you selected that you might encounter as a counselor working with this particular case.
