Psychiatry is a complex study, and clients often have medications or issues that can have sexual implications. This workshop will include an overview of common psychiatric conditions such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADD and PTSD and how these conditions interplay with sexuality. Discussions and activities will enhance the learning process. Common medications used today will also be discussed. This class is not meant to be a detailed psychopharmacology class, nor will it cover every mental illness. However, therapists who attend are encouraged to bring case examples to discuss.
