Addressing Sexuality and Intimacy Interests 

Report cover of  Addressing Sexuality and Intimacy Interests 

 Talking about intimacy and sexuality with consumers of mental health services has often been difficult for providers, but the Temple Collaborative has now issued a new monograph that reviews the research literature in this often neglected field, recommends policy and program changes that mental health administrators can implement to create a more open atmosphere in their agencies, and suggests training programs for direct service personnel that increases both their comfort level and their clinical skills in talking about sexuality and intimacy within the context of their helping relationships.
