Please note that the timing of this workshop has changed: It is now a one day course being held on October 8, 2019 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM in Portland, OR

This class will cover the most common sexual issues partners present in therapy, including desire discrepancies, arousal difficulties, orgasm issues, and sexual pain.  We will explore how these issues impact relationship functioning and how to assess and treat these issues. Students will have the opportunity to practice direct sex therapy interventions.  They will also increase their awareness of their own biases and assumptions around sexual orientation, relationship configurations, and sexual practices, and how those influence the clinical setting.  In addition, students will explore how betrayal, trust, aging and identity issues effect eroticism in sexual partnerships.
