Sexual health is a fundamental aspect of the life cycle that arises in mental health treatment with individuals of all ages. Despite the pervasiveness of sexual health issues, it is a topic that is often neglected in clinical practice due to the complex nature of what constitutes sexual health and sexual practices. Sexual health is often difficult for practitioners and clinicians to address openly and honestly with clients. In addition, it is uncertain as to what sexual health related training mental health practitioners are receiving in academic and professional programs in the United States. The research in this book seeks to assess mental health practitioners' and direct care workers' attitudes, knowledge and training in sexual health utilizing an Integral Theoretical Framework. This book can inform educators' and counselors' understanding of sexual issues for the development of clinical skills and the betterment of clients.
