"Development of Sexual Identity, Barriers to Intimacy, and the Promotion of Sexual Health"
This presentation will review the development of the various aspects of sexual identity and models of identity formation. Various sexual and gender identities will also be explored from a cross cultural perspective. Measurement and constructions of sexual and gender identity will be discussed. The development of a positive sexual identity is clearly linked to the development and maintenance of sexual health. A positive sexual identity is essential for the development of healthy intimate relationships. A model of sexual health and a model of the development of healthy intimate relationships will be presented. A variety of common barriers to intimate relationships will be discussed. Finally, it is recognized that healthy identity and intimacy functioning is dependent upon a sexually healthy environment. The aspects of this environment will be discussed as well as a review of current efforts to promote a sexually healthier world from a public policy perspective.
