Therapists don’t always delve quickly into the sex lives of older clients. But if they did they’d find that many are keen to maintain sexual connections, boost their sex drive, and continue to explore their sexuality. Also, they value the help that therapists can offer.
Join clinical psychologist Regina Koepp, founder of the Center of Mental Health and Aging, and creator of the only dementia and sexual health certificate program in the U.S., as she helps us check our older sexual stigma.
Dr. Koepp talks with Networker senior writer Lauren Dockett about how to have “the sex talk” with older clients, adjust “sex-pectations,” address sex drive fluctuations, get creative about lovemaking, and help LGBTQ clients process any suffering from LGBTQ-phobia.
Read her article from our September/October issue, "Sex and the Older Couple."
