Qualification: Master in Clinical Sexology and Couples Therapy issued by ISEP
The Master in Clinical Sexology and Couples Therapy provides a solid scientific and multidisciplinary training on the different aspects of sexual dysfunctions that affect the human being and the couple's relationships from a biopsychosocial perspective.
Sexual problems today can have different etiologies. Biological aspects, such as a specific disease, or cultural and psychological factors may be responsible for sexual conflicts. Cultural diversity, lack of communication, negotiation and few skills to solve problems are the most common causes of conflicts in the couple. With the ISEP master you will have the possibility of reviewing the variables involved in preventive aspects, as well as the diagnosis and intervention in sexual difficulties and the improvement of couple relationships.
The methodology is based on a practical training through dynamics (role playing and discussions of clinical cases), clinical sessions and practices in collaborating centers.
