RE-Discovering Sexuality: Post Stroke

TPG’s own Lisa Meyers, LSCSW/LCSW/CST, recently facilitated a support group for young survivors at the American Stroke Foundation. The group members were engaging and wanted to learn more about sexual expectations post stroke, how to keep sexuality alive and interesting, and how to get a partner’s interest in sex to increase.

Lisa often uses Barry McCarthy's "Good Enough Sex Model" while talking with people about finding a healthy sexual life, but it is especially relative for people in rehabilitation or those living with chronic illness. "Helping people re-discover pleasure is at the core of my work, and vital for couples who have experience traumatic illness or medical issues", stated Meyers. "They need a break from all the work, doctors and grief. Connecting with your partner and your own sexuality is a return to a quality life."

Jean Brogan, KU practicum student and ASF intern stated: “I had to share that the next day (after your presentation) I ran a group at ASF.  We used the wipe board and purposefully left the pleasure wheel drawing on the board.  Questions came about and we all chimed in that it was a wonderful meeting.  One person kept staring at it smiling and occasionally would say "Boy, I missed something good"!  We all concurred.”
