ABSTRACT

Background: The topic of sexual obsessions as a psychiatric symptom has not been well investigated. The aim of this study was twofold: 1) to explore the presence of sexual obsessions in patients with mood disorders (n=156), panic disorder (n=54) and schizophrenia (n=79), with respect to non-psychiatric subjects (n=100); 2) to investigate the relationship between sexual obsessions and suicidal behaviors, taking into account socio-demographic variables ad mental disorders.

Methods: 289 psychiatric patients with mood disorders, panic disorder or schizophrenia, were recruited at the Italian University departments of psychiatry along with 100 non-psychiatric subjects, who presented for a routine eye exam at the ophthalmology department of the same Universities.

This course on sexual obsessions and suicidal behaviors in psychiatric and non-psychiatric patients is designed for professional counselors, social workers, psychologists, nurses, and other professionals who do clinical work.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of sexual obsessions as a symptom.  This course may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.  

 

The course is based on a journal article which includes research.  As such it contains statistical analysis and data which some clinicians enjoy reading and others do not.  One of the benefits of reading research based articles for continuing education is that it allows the practitioner to keep current on the latest findings in their field.
