To future generations of sexologists (Spanish)

To future generations of sexologists (Spanish)

2014-08-01 00:00:00

The Conference is dedicated to young professionals, who have been attending to WAS World Congress only recently. They will have the opportunity to know the sexological contributions from many pioneers that W.A.S has awarded with the Gold Medal. We will also show what happened in the early Sexological congresses before the W.A.S. was created. At the end of the Twentieth century, W.A.S. introduced gold medals to award the pioneers of sexology during their lifetime.

There have been 45 pioneers in 20 years. Most of them, I had the pleasure to know personally and know their work. I will speak of some of them and some others who are colleagues that have not yet received the medal but play a part in my training. Some of them are from my country and others from distant countries. Almost everyone knows about Masters & Johnson, Helen Kaplan, John Money, Bianco, amongst others. But few of the young people know the contributions of Richard Green, Gerard Valles, Prakash Kothari, Helen O’Connell, Ricardo Cavalcanti, Laura Caldiz, Cristina Fridman and others. I will show through clinical examples some very difficult cases where I had to resort to the help of these wise colleagues who helped me solve them. My thanks go  the Director of  the W.A.S. Awards Selection Committee, Lillemor Rosenqvist, to those who nominated me, and to the Congress President Jaqueline Brendler.

40 years of academic sex - straight from my heart, by Lars-Gösta Dahlöf

As a psychology and medicine student in the sixties and early seventies I realized that sexology was missing in the education and training curriculum for most health professionals. This concern encouraged me to ask my own department and the University of Gothenburg to modify the current curricula making sexology a compulsory subject in the academic training for physicians and psychologists in the first place.

Therapy from the heart: Psychotherapy in the WPATH Standards of Care for transsexual, transgender and Gender non conforming people

The psychotherapy section of the WPATH Standards of Care for the Health of Transsexual, Transgender and Gender nonconforming People (SOC) is the most obvious component of the SOC that has to do with “heart”, the theme of this conference. Psychotherapy, to be good, requires empathy and imagination, connection and relatedness, and listening to story.
