Webinar Description

This session will review the medical conditions that may sometimes lead to or worsen depression and sexual dysfunction. Although it is not the therapist’s role to conduct a medical interview, it is important for every therapist to inquire about the general health of their client, to acquire a basic knowledge of common causes and to make certain that the client has a physician involved in their health care. This talk will address conditions that are often overlooked or underestimated as causes of mood changes and sexual dysfunction. Commonly used medications will be briefly reviewed.
