About the Event:

The integration of couples' therapy and sex therapy is no easy task. Couples therapy is a deepening process for both couples and individuals. Sex therapy at its core is a cognitive-behavior therapy. Many couples' therapists are taught little about sex therapy. They often learn that repairing the attachment wound and creating reconnection will solve the sexual problem. 


Through this presentation, we will explore an overview of the integration of couples and sex therapy. Many components of knowledge are necessary to explore this topic, such as psychodynamic theory, relational components, medical issues and information about positive healthy, sexuality. Most importantly, we will briefly look at our own attitudes about addressing sexuality and discuss ways to bring up the topic of sexuality with our individuals and couples.


Learning Objectives

1) Name four factors to explore in any case of sexual dysfunction/difficulty

2) Identify themes in individuals or couples which provide opportunities to explore sexuality issues
