As occupational therapy providers we address a lot of things. Commonly this includes mental health, physical health, emotional health, but not so commonly is sexual health included in this. But honestly all these are aspects are pivotal to our overall health and wellbeing as a person. Today I’m going to dig into a few of my takeaways from my episode with Dr. Tickoo where we chatted about about sex, sexuality, and occupational therapy.
- Importance of addressing sexual health just as we address mental, physical and emotional health
- Recognition of the lack of sexual health education within OT education
- Sexual health needs to be addressed across the lifespan
