CEU Information

Cancer, Sexuality, and Relationships

with Stephanie Buehler, MPW, PsyD, CST-S, IF

Thursday, December 9th, 2021, 7:00pm-9:00pm EST.

This course will be held virtually via Zoom.
2 AASECT and NYS CE Credits Available.

In this course, Dr. Stephanie Buehler will discuss how to understand and treat sexual problems that arise from the late effects of cancer, including for sexual/gender minorities. While any cancer diagnosis can create change in a couple’s intimate relationship, but those cancers that involve the reproductive organs generally have the most profound effect. Most cancer survivors complain about lack of sexual desire, but for men with urological cancer and women with breast or gynecological cancer, the direct impact on function can make navigating the “new normal” a special challenge. With stories from the trenches working with cancer survivors, as well as personal experience as the wife of a prostate cancer survivor, Dr. Buehler will share her approach to helping people understand and cope with sexual changes due to cancer.
