The proposal for a specialization in human sexuality and sexual therapy is justified by the need for an updated approach that aims to promote health and sexual well-being in its entirety, involving , in this way, the physical, the mental and the relationships. An inclusive perspective on the constitutions of individuals and societies. Given the breadth of knowledge proposed and necessary for this specialization, the present project highlights the areas of biology (such as physiology and neurobiology), psyche, society, relations, culture, ideology, politics, human rights and scientific knowledge itself.

The themes, present in the disciplines, extend over the history of sexuality, such as the discovery of Foucault's sexuality device, neurosciences, sex medicine, Queer and gender studies, social and clinical psychology, with a diversity of interventional techniques, such as those based on ecosystem theory, cognitive and behavioral psychology, narrative theory, among others.

Therefore, the work in the area of human sexuality and sex therapy, seeks the diversity of approaches for understanding individuals in their multidimensionalities and complexities so that appropriate therapeutic interventions can be employed.
