Women’s Sexual Health Group-Online
An 8-week session (New Group Beginning January 2021). Please contact IPCI to be placed on the waiting list to be contacted once dates are secured!
Research indicates that sexual dysfunction is prevalent across genders, but can affect up to 43% of women (Laumann et al., 1999). Sexual concerns tend to be a taboo subject to address in mainstream culture, and as a result, many women suffer in silence, which can increase shame, affect self-worth, and negatively affect relationships.
This 8-week, online psychoeducational group will provide education about what healthy sexual function means for women and address barriers that interfere with healthy sexual response. This group is designed to balance being given reputable education about sexual function and fostering a safe, confidential space to address, acknowledge, and process sexual concerns with other women having similar experiences. The group will be facilitated by Dr. Maria Hanzlik, a clinical psychologist and AASECT-certified sex therapist, and will be co-facilitated by Dr. Josie Gronbach. Groups will be conducted using Google Meet, a HIPAA-Compliant telehealth platform. Some of the topics the group will address include:
- How do we talk about sex and anatomy?
- Fact vs. fiction regarding women’s sexual function and response
- Normal sexual changes across the lifespan
- Maintaining healthy sex in long-term relationships
- How childhood messages about sex affect individuals in the present
Pre-registration is required as well as an individual session prior to the beginning of the group to address history and assess concerns, expectations of group, and goodness of fit. Women 18 and older are eligible to participate.
The cost of the 8-session group is $320 to be paid prior to the start of the group. Sessions can be billed to insurance for clients with Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield coverage.
Registration is limited. Call or email email@example.com for more information and to secure your place in the group!
