The content of this talk will span a wide range of variables that contribute to assessment and treatment of sexual behaviors. As with many generalized definitions, sexual behavior spans a near infinite set of repertoires, making more targeted interventions somewhat challenging. Add unique contexts, preferences, and nuances related to sexuality, and the field of sexual behavior becomes increasingly complex. The goal of this talk is to focus primarily on how to approach and assess variables related to dangerous or concerning sexual behavior that present socially significant challenges for client as well as the community.
