CLASS 1

Female Sexuality Across the Lifespan

Individual therapists as well as couples therapists deal with women’s sexuality all the time.  However, most therapists have no education and training on how to help couples through their sexual concerns and issues during major life cycle events such as when they are trying to conceive, when she is pregnant, postpartum, and menopause.  Is what they are experiencing normal?  How do other couples cope with this sexual concern?  This course will explore the intricacies of sexual lifecycle events from preventing pregnancy, trying to conceive, pregnancy, postpartum, to menopause.  Participants will learn to identify medical, psychological, and socio-cultural factors which are playing a role in her concerns.  They will also learn ways to best support the couple as well as practical intervention techniques to help them through this time in their life. 

3 Hours

 

1:45 PM - 4:45 PM EST

CLASS 2

Sex Therapy with Diverse Cultural and Religious Populations

About 70-80% of the American population identifies as religious and adhering to a faith. Additionally, America is becoming more diverse than ever before. Practicing any type of therapy requires understanding and knowledge of cultures and religions that impact our client’s worldviews.  Even more so, practicing good sex therapy must consider a client’s family system as well as cultural and religious notions, practices, and values as pertaining to relationships, sexuality, sex, gender, and family systems.  This course will take a sweeping tour around the world with most time spent on Asia and the Middle East and will explore some of the norms, customs, practices, specific challenges, and specific strengths of working with people from different cultures and religions.  We will explore working with East Asians, clients from the Indian sub-continent, Muslims, Arabs, Jews, Christians, Mormons, and others.  With some basic understanding of these cultures and religions, participants will learn how to provide culturally-sensitive therapy, use their clients’ religion and culture in a strength-based approach, and navigate some of the common challenges that arise along the way.

This One Day Seminar includes two excellent classes, a total of 6 CEs. The cost of the full day is $99.99. You may attend an individual class for $59.99.
