Sexual History Taking: Case Presentation/Sensitive Issues in the Treatment of Special Populations

Describe a special population (any marginalized group, e.g., transgendered individuals or people with intellectual disabilities), evaluating and supporting the population’s need for a tailored (versus general) approach during a sex therapy session’s sexual history taking. Use a case presentation featuring a fictional individual who is seeking help to address hypothetical sexual response concerns. The case presentation will provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate your ability to recognize clinical issues specific to a group that is often disrespected, mistreated, or misunderstood when receiving counseling services; perform a thorough literature review in identifying the current best evidence practices to address issues; apply the information to clinical practice; and gain experience educating peers about the topic of concern.

It would be helpful to review a case study of how to conduct a sexual history with an individual from a special population.

In making your case:

  • State the importance of conducting a sexual history from “x” population, including barriers faced and the need for advocacy.
  • Include an assessment of the information typically provided to individuals in this minority group, based on your readings and independent research of the literature, an interpretation of their specialized therapeutic needs, and relevant information and skills for meeting their needs and for improving and fostering participation and interaction critical for achieving therapeutic goals.
  • Provide resources for both counselors and this special population.
  • Cite references in supporting your claims.

Your final submission will be an 8- to 10-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation and should include the following information:

  • Title of the presentation and other introductory information
  • Objectives of the presentation
  • Key definitions
  • Description of special population and barriers faced
  • Specialized therapeutic needs and skills
  • Additional tips for better engaging the selected special population during sex counseling
  • Resources
  • References presented as endnotes
  • Speaker notes to define the slides

Your Microsoft PowerPoint presentation should be written in APA format. Your presentation should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Support your rationale and analysis by using at least two resources from professional literature in your response (one of the resources may be an article you read for this assignment). Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources; relevant textbooks; peer-reviewed journal articles; and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (websites ending in .edu or .gov).
