‘Let’s talk about sex!’ Understanding and supporting sexual functioning following brain injury or other complex neuro-disability
Sexual desire is a fundamental human drive. Experiencing a brain injury or neurological illness can have wide-ranging impacts on sexual functioning for both the affected person and those around them.
This conference will explore the multifaceted sexual and intimacy challenges faced by people with complex neuro-disability, their partners, and the carers and professionals who support them.
Topics will include:
- Physical consequences of neurological dysfunction and their impact on sexual functioning
- Cognitive and behavioural challenges that can affect intimacy
- The challenges faced by clinicians and carers working with these individuals and their partners
- Legal and ethical issues in different settings, including capacity to consent
This conference will be of interest to doctors, nurses, psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, social workers, case managers, and legal practitioners working with clients with brain injury or other complex neuro-disabilities.
