Description

When couples come to therapy with problems involving desire, arousal, and orgasm, therapists often fall into the trap of thinking of them as somehow broken and in need of fixing.  

This is often not the case!  

Don’t risk leaving your clients without the help they came to you for. Join sex therapist expert and author Suzanne Iasenza, PhD,  in this recording and learn an approach that guides couples from a state of disconnection to becoming a sexual-discovery team exploring their own idiosyncratic pathway to pleasure.  

Specifically, you’ll learn a three-part therapeutic process to help couples find alternatives to rigid scripts about what fulfilling sexuality is supposed to be like. You’ll explore how to: 

  1. Conduct a Detailed Sexual History  
    • Help clients understand their current sexual narratives  
    • How to create more liberating stories for each partner 
  2. Empowering Both Partners 
    • Make explicit each partner’s “menu” for preferred sexual activities 
    • Expanding partners’ repertoire for more genuine erotic satisfaction 
  3. Meditative Tools to Teach Couples 
    • Sensate focus 
    • Considerations in clinical practice when working with clients to enhance their sexual development
