"Child and Adolescent Services at PHS"
The PHS clinic, the Center for Sexual Health, has recently developed a program for children and adolescents with a range of sexual issues including sexual behavior problems, gender issues and, in conjunction with the Disorders of Sexual Development Clinic at the KDWB University Pediatrics Family Center, children and adolescents with a disorder of sexual development who need more psychological support and psychosexual education. While a few clinicians have traditionally worked with young clients, now the clinic has more fully developed guidelines and treatment models and thus has the capacity to see many more youth within a comprehensive framework. The expansion not only increases our clinical services but broadens our training for postdoctoral fellows. As the developer and coordinator of the new program, Dr. Dianne Berg will be discussing some of the theoretical and research-related underpinnings of the current assessment and treatment protocols as well as the protocols themselves so one can get a sense of what is now offered for youth at the Center for Sexual Health.
