Treating psychogenic erectile dysfunction
Speaker: Evie Kirana
Health Psychologist & Sexologist
Content and Aim
Erection problems can be experienced by approximately 20% of young men. Some men experience difficulty to attain an erection while others experience difficulty maintaining it. Some men are in a relationship while others are single. Some men have never experienced positive sexual encounters while in others the problem interrupted a previous satisfying sexual life. Different clinical profiles reflect different treatment needs. Health care professionals need to be well equipped in order to recognize and respond to the patients’ most relevant psychotherapeutic needs. This webinar will focus on helping mental health care providers advance their treatments for various clinical profiles of men presenting with psychogenic erectile dysfunction. Clinicians will be guided on 1) understanding the differences among the most common clinical profiles; 2) interpreting the sexual history and getting the most of it in limited time; 3) planning and synthesizing psychotherapeutic interventions that will restore erections and increase men’s resilience to future sexual problems; 4) using the above experience as an opportunity to increase self-awareness that will improve the man’s other life domains beyond sexual life.
