The pelvic floor is a complicated anatomical entity which includes muscles, soft tissues, nerves, blood supply, and the organs supported within. In addition to sexual function, the pelvic floor is integral in bowel and bladder functioning, sphincter control, and support of the pelvic organs. While the pelvic floor has objective and anatomic markers, pelvic floor function is closely related to psychological processes including anxiety and trauma.
This two hour teleclass is designed to educate counselors, therapist and educators with limited medical background, in the basic anatomy and function of the pelvic floor. The anatomy of the pelvic floor will be reviewed in detail and normal pelvic floor functioning in sexual activity will be elucidated. In addition, the functions of the pelvic floor will be reviewed and explained. The role of the pelvic floor in sexual pain disorders and other sexual problems will be addressed and relevant research will be cited.
