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. Instead, this session 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 narratives about what fulfilling sexuality is supposed to be like and discover how to:

  • Conduct a detailed sexual history to help partners understand their current sexual narratives and how to create more liberating stories
  • Empower both partners to make explicit their “menus” for preferred sexual activities as a way of expanding their repertoire for more genuine erotic connection and satisfaction
  • Help couples use sensate focus as a meditative tool to enhance their sexual development
  • Integrate sex therapy into couples therapy
