Patient Information

Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit (SBCU)

CONSULTATION AND EVALUATION

Consultation and evaluation are offered for a broad range of sexual issues. (See Conditions We Treat)
Adults in relationships are evaluated as a couple when appropriate. Children and adolescents are typically accompanied by their parents. Separate interviews are conducted with children/adolescents and their parents.

Evaluations at The Johns Hopkins Hosptial occur on Friday afternoons from 12:45 noon to 5:00 p.m. Patients complete several self-report psychological inventories, and are interviewed to obtain complete medical, social, psychiatric and sexual histories. Physical examinations and blood tests are performed when indicated.

TREATMENT

Following evaluation, the SBCU also offers a broad spectrum of treatments, including:

  • Individual psychotherapy
  • Marital/relationship counseling
  • Psychopharmacology
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy

EXTENDED MEDICAL CONSULTATION

The SBCU collaborates with psychiatrists and other physicians, psychologists and other health professionals and agencies. When appropriate at the time of evaluation, referrals are made to specialties such as urology, gynecology, endocrinology, pediatrics, and internal medicine for further medical examination and possible treatment. A collaborative relationship is maintained with these specialties while the patient is treated or evaluated in the SBCU.
