Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Sexuality and intimacy are often meaningful activities for humans, yet OTs are hesitant to address these topics with their clients. Limited research is available that could inform and guide the profession in establishing curriculum and best practice. This case series is the first study to explore key factors of OT sex and intimacy intervention in enhancing performance in sexual activity and intimacy social participation.
