Abstract

In-person, individual counseling using the PLISSIT model is a well-known approach to help people with sexual problems. Evidence suggests that Grouped Sexuality Education (GSE) can be as effective as in-person sexuality education. The efficacy of PLISSIT versus GSE has not previously been evaluated in women with Breast Cancer (BC). In this paper, we report on the effect of PLISSIT versus GSE on self-reported sexual behaviors experienced by women after a BC diagnosis (n = 75). The women were randomly allocated into three groups, with 25 women in each arm. Data analysis of the intention-to-treat population (n = 65) revealed efficacy of both GSE and PLISSIT in improving sexual behaviors (p \textless 0.0001) with a positive change in sexual capacity, motivation and performance after 6- and 12-weeks post-intervention follow ups. We found the GSE model showed a greater efficacy than the PLISSIT model. Due to the substantial needs faced by women with cancer and the cost associated with implementing the PLISST model, GSE seems to be more effective. We recommend GSE for Iranian communities where management of sexual problems is at an early stage and where the sexuality of women with cancer is routinely overlooked. © 2020, © 2020 College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists.
