PRESENTATION OF THE EDUSEX CENTER
It is with great pleasure that CEFI presents its new core of studies: EDUSEX - Education in Sexuality.
The human sexual dimension is innate and complex. The perception and expression of sexuality are factors that impact the quality of life of individuals.
However, the theme of sex is a theme wrapped in taboos and difficulties in dealing with the issue of sexuality is often a source of intra and interpersonal suffering.
Sexual difficulties can influence the level of satisfaction and quality of the marital relationship. Couples in therapy will most likely have sexual issues to work on, although that may not be the main reason for looking.
The construction of sexuality in the family context and the challenge of including the topic of sexuality in family therapies requires new reflections and approaches by health professionals.
Issues of gender / identity and sexual orientation in contemporary times invite us to seek more actively the understanding and acceptance by society, through work strategies and interventions in sexual education in families.
We realize, however, that difficulties in addressing the topic can also be felt by professionals, who often do not receive this education and training in undergraduate courses, making this area often overlooked.
It is for this purpose that the CEFI-EDUSEX Center was born, aware of the need to create a space where therapists can share and learn to include sexual issues as an integral topic in their clinical practice.
