The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

This Sex Positive September, we recognize that part of being sex positive is taking responsibility for your sexual health – by destigmatizing the conversation around STIs, knowing your status and staying up to date on the latest information. Joining me for this conversation is returning guest Dr. Tanya M. Bass. Dr. Bass holds certifications as a Certified Sexuality Educator with the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, as well as a Certified Health Education Specialist.

In our conversation, we explored the common types of STIs and their symptoms, the importance of education in the prevention of STIs, and how getting to know your body can help you better recognize STI symptoms.
