From Dysfunction to Erotic Discovery
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. Instead, this workshop offers an approach that guides couples from a state of disconnection to becoming a sexual-discovery team exploring their own idiosyncratic pathway to pleasure. 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.
