Presenter: Jennifer Vellios

Previous research demonstrates that persistent female sexual pain impacts nearly all areas of women’s lives. This presentation will present the findings from Jennifer’s thesis exploring women’s experiences of Genito-pelvic pain/penetration disorder (GPPPD). It will discuss the potential impact that GPPPD has on women’s mental health, sense of self, and relationships. It will also give an account of both positive and negative interactions with healthcare providers demonstrating how healthcare interactions impact women’s overall experience of GPPPD, as well as providing examples of how healthcare providers can improve women’s experiences of GPPPD.

This workshop will be highly informative and useful to sexologists, therapists, psychologists, general practitioners, allied health professionals, students and educators.
