Dr. Walling's first educational program in this role will be hosting a webinar on Sexuality and Aging: Embracing Change with guest speaker Prof. William L. Yarber, HSD

Research has found that mental, social and physical activities are associated with slower rates of cognitive decline and reduced risk of dementia in older adults. Sexual activity with others, having mental, social and physical elements, is associated with better physical health and overall well-being. Studies reveal an association between sexual intimacy and results on cognitive tests. The English Longitudinal Study of Aging (Wright and Jenkins, 2016) showed that older persons reporting being sexually active in the past twelve months had better cognitive scores than those reporting not being sexually active in the past twelve months.

He is the lead trainer for ARPF's Brain LongevityTM Therapy Training. Dr. Walling also serves on the Scientific Advisory Board for the Kinsey Institute for Sex Research at Indiana University. 

Dr. Walling is a licensed clinical psychologist and the President of the United States Association for Body Psychotherapy. He serves as the Associate-Deputy Editor for the International Body Psychotherapy Journal. His clinical focus in the behavioral sciences has examined the intersections of neuro-psychotherapy, affect regulation, and body psychology. Dr. Walling is a clinical associate at the New Center for Psychoanalysis, and a certified yoga therapist.
