Webcast image

April 20 — 23, 2017

Location
The Hotel Omni Mont-Royal
1050 rue Sherbrooke Street West
Montreal, Quebec

Description
Our 42nd year as an organization, we celebrate our continued commitment to excellence in the field of human sexuality – in research, clinical practice, education and training – as well as our commitment to the principle that people from all ages and all walks of life have a right to a healthy sexuality, a right to sex therapy treatment, and access to scientific discovery informing their sexual health and well-being.

The papers and their presenters at this meeting will stimulate our thinking about sexuality and its problems, moving beyond our current conceptualizations of relationships, trauma, and sexual well-being. Now, more than ever, is a time to fully embrace the diversity of sexual preferences and experiences and to apply our science of sexuality to developing the best treatments for those who seek our help. There will be opportunities to hear about alternate sexual interests and their more widespread prevalence than previously thought, to examine pedophilia from the perspective of both offenders and scientists alike, to become more familiar with sexual minority’s victimization in intimate relationships, and to look at love and sex among aging individuals with cognitive deficits such as dementia. In addition, we’ll get an update on recent developments in the diagnosis of sexual dysfunction, most notably with a panel discussion on the proposed changes to ICD-11.

  • Apply our science of sexuality to developing the best treatments for those who seek our help
