Sexuality Concepts for Social Workers
Sexuality Concepts for Social Workers is a research-informed, reader-friendly guide that helps practitioners address sexuality-related issues with a variety of clients.
Topics covered include the role of values in sexuality, sexual health and reproduction, relationships, sexual orientation, gender and gender identity, sexuality and the lifespan, sex work and sex workers, sexuality in the ill or disabled, and being a sexually healthy adult. Chapters feature discussion questions, implications and applications for real-world practice, case examples, and opinion pieces from each of the authors to enhance learning, reflection, and critical thinking.
The second edition features updated QR codes to direct students to additional resources, a new chapter called “Sexuality, Spirituality, and Social Work,” updated discussion questions, fresh author opinion pieces, and new topics, including racial preferences when dating, conversion therapy, and sexuality policies in retirement and assisted living facilities.
Sexuality Concepts for Social Workers helps practitioners build their sexuality literacy to better assist patients. It is ideal for advanced undergraduate and foundational graduate courses on human behavior, sexuality diversity, and human sexuality for social workers.
