Speaking of Sex – Integrating Couples and Sex Therapy Online Course
If you’re like most couples therapists, you know how to help partners communicate more clearly, handle conflict with less uproar, and connect more empathically. But when it comes to talking about sex, especially about how to address the lack of erotic vitality in a relationship . . .well, not so much. In our professional training—and in our own personal lives—most of us just haven’t developed the capacity to talk about sex in a way that opens up new possibilities and challenges the sense of shame and secrecy in which it’s often shrouded.
In this brand new video series—Speaking of Sex: Integrating Couples and Sex Therapy—we’ve brought together a group of innovators who’ve pioneered ways to address the erotic dimensions of intimate partnership that traditional approaches too often ignore. They’ll show you how to help couples share their private musings about desire, fantasy, and perceived inadequacy that can vitalize their connection and add a new dimension to their bond with each other. You’ll learn the latest methods for helping couples break out of rigid sexual patterns, reawaken eroticism, expand their sexual repertoire, address problems with low desire, and enhance the pleasure and emotional resonance of their lovemaking.
We’ve invited Esther Perel, Susan Johnson, Michele Weiner Davis, Ian Kerner, Suzanne Iasenza, and Helen Fisher to join us for 6 provocative and clinically informative video conversations about the latest advances in integrating sex and couples therapy.
