Description

  • How do you deal with sexual behaviors with which you don’t have personal experience?
  • How do you evaluate if sexual configurations are unhealthy, or simply consensual alternatives?
  • When it comes to sex, are you an “askable therapist”?

When people come in and the presenting problem is sex, do you know what you need to know about affairs, desire, pornography, fertility, S/M, “sex addiction,” arranged marriages, aging, cybersex, and orgasm? And when the presenting problem isn’t sex, do you know how to deal with the ways sexuality can interface with issues of power, anxiety, intimacy, guilt, shame, and isolation?

Therapists also need to understand how clients construct self-defeating narratives about sexuality—and understand how therapists can unwittingly collude with these narratives, undermining diagnosis and treatment. Most therapists don’t understand, for example, that helping clients feel sexually “normal” undermines treatment rather than supporting it.

In this seminar, participants will acquire new tools to interpret, influence, and treat patients’ sexual decision-making—without stripping sex of its richness, darkness, and adulthood.

OBJECTIVES

  • Identify one’s own assumptions about sexuality that unintentionally influence treatment.
  • Describe how to evaluate patients’ narratives about sexuality, and their influence on sexual experience and behavior.
  • Develop a minimum level of knowledge about “alternative” sexual expression.
  • Explain the impact of “normality anxiety” on patients, and to learn how to discuss this with patients.
