In this webinar, Sari Cooper reviews the part of sex therapy known as the Sexual Status Examination, a cornerstone of sex therapy leader Helen Singer Kaplan’s technique in treating couples with sexual problems and/or dysfunctions. Described by Singer Kaplan as “the most important part of the diagnostic interview”, the sexual status assessment can help a therapist discover a great amount of formerly unexamined material that is critical to helping a couple with their sexual dilemma.


  • Participants will be able to apply the sexual status evaluation when interviewing new clients who are being treated for sexual presenting problems.
  • Participants will integrate their knowledge of this sex therapy assessment technique with psychodynamic, family systems and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy theory and practice.
