Mindfulness applications to women’s sexual difficulties

Mindfulness applications to women’s sexual difficulties

2011-09-01 00:00:00

The goal of this presentation is to discuss the findings from four controlled trials evaluating a mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral sex therapy in diverse samples of women.
Among different samples of women with:
(1) Provoked Vestibulodynia,
(2) sexual dysfuntion associated with gynaecologic cancer,
(3) iatrogenic hypoactive sexual desire disorder, and
(4) sexual distress associated with a history of childhood sexual abuse,
a 4-session mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral intervention significantly improved several indices of sexual function and significantly reduced distress compared to a wait-list control group. These studies provide further support for the utility of incorporating mindfulness into an array of complex sexual symptom presentations.
