Sex Therapy for Psychiatrists

Professor Pierre Assalian MD

Psychiatrists even though they would be considered the ideal and best medical specialty to evaluate and treat sexual dysfunctions due to their knowledge of medicine and psychology, yet not too many psychiatrists are interested in sexual medicine.Psychiatrists who are dealing with sexual dysfunctions including myself felt outside the main stream of psychiatry. It is only when MDs realised that medications specially those prescribed by psychiatrists like antidepressants and antipsychotics cause sexual dysfunctions that our profession got interrested in the field of sexology. In Canada, theCanadian Psychiatric Association formed a group of experts psychiatrists including myself to come up with a programme to teach psychiatrists how to evaluate sexual dysfunctions and treat them.
