Introductory 4 session Consultation Workshop

Fridays, 9:30-12:30pm

January 23, February 6, February 27, March 20 2015

Many couples presenting for couples therapy may complain of sex issues: discrepancies in desire, lack of attraction or sexual compatibility, arousal or orgasm problems, or challenges in the bedroom after having children, going through infidelity or in the wake of trauma. From the perspective of Emotionally Focused Therapy, such complaints are often, but not always, part of an underlying lack of security and bond in the relationship caused by the negative cycle between partners.  At times, as the partners de-escalate and become more secure, sexual issues remain unresolved.  Yet, many EFT therapists lack knowledge and skill in the area of sex assessment and intervention.  In this 4 session workshop you will learn how to begin integrating sex therapy within EFT for couples.  This workshop will include lecture, video examples, live consultation and case presentations by selected participants.
