Learning outcomes include:

  • gaining knowledge about human sexual response, desire and sexual ‘problems’;
  • learning how to have conversations with clients about sexuality, sex and their intimate relationships;
  • learn about the key theoretical perspectives around human sexuality including sexual identity.
