Product Overview

Sexual activity is considered to be an ADL by the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, and it is valued among many people. Clients who experience an illness or injury are entitled to engage in that occupation, but sexuality is not typically addressed in occupational therapy’s clinical or educational settings.

This illustrated book is intended for occupational therapy clinicians, educators, and students who seek to acquire greater understanding of how to address sexuality concerns in occupational therapy practice, including approaching the topic, understanding the specifics, and referring to an appropriate specialist in this area. Discusses sexuality and clients with arthritis, cancer, diabetes, spinal cord injury, cardiovascular disease, TBI, stroke, and mental disorders, as well as adolescents with disabilities.
