Presenter: Jane Fleishman, Ph.D.
When: Friday June 18, 2021 12:30pm-3:30pm EST (live and recorded)
Research informs us that older adults are having sex into their 60s and 70s, they’re enjoying sex, and that sex is good for their health. So, who are we to be in denial about older adult sexuality? In this fast-paced and exciting program, Dr. Fleishman describes the current research in the field of sexuality and aging and provides tips for clinicians talking to older adults about sex.
The focus of this class is to improve participants’ knowledge, skills, and attitudes about an aging population; the diversity of sexual backgrounds, experiences and expectations among aging populations; and the implications of common physical and medical conditions of aging as they relate to intimacy and sexuality. We will address the problems and challenges faced by an older population, including cognitive
dysfunction during the latter phases of the developmental cycle and include applications to work withaging populations.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
1. identify three of the key areas of comprehensive sexuality education,
2. describe three challenges of older adults’ sexuality, and
3. apply one aspect of this workshop into your work with older adults.
