Presentation

Clinical sexology is an upward specialization that increasingly requires professional experts in this field of competence. In fact, just over 45% of the population will suffer some type of sexual dysfunction throughout their lives. Despite this high prevalence, public services are not sufficiently trained to offer this specialized care properly. On the other hand, there are more and more private centers that need to incorporate specialized professionals in this field to form multidisciplinary teams that can meet the wide variety of care demands in the field of clinical sexology.

This master's degree aims to become a quality training proposal, university, professional, that guarantees students the acquisition of knowledge and skills necessary to develop their professional project properly.

On the other hand, the frequency of couple crises and divorces in our country demands the existence of trained professionals who can help resolve these situations in the best possible way, which often generate a high level of personal unrest, discomfort that it is extended to children and the most immediate circle of personal relationships.

The availability of competent professionals is increasingly necessary to guide and advise couples in resolving their interpersonal conflicts or in dissolving the relationship in the least costly way possible from an emotional point of view.

Methodology

The Master's work is based on:
1. Theoretical and practical classes (dynamic theory, analysis of clinical cases in groups, etc.).
2. Formative therapy (the student participates as a patient in 8 sessions of individual therapy prior to clinical care with assigned patients).
3. Work with real clinical cases (the student will be assigned patients of the Institute to do their practices, under supervision).
4. Supervision group (experienced senior therapists will supervise student work).
5. Virtual work (essentially work and article reviews, technical monographs, etc.).
6. Guided tours.
7. Master's final project.
8. Personalized tutoring (a tutor accompanies each student throughout the entire master).

Evaluation system
