Imagine a client entering therapy saying she has no desire for sex and hasn’t had sex for the past 5 years of married life. Her husband is losing patience. They are beginning to fight and she is concerned that this is going to ruin her marriage. The therapist suggests getting a baby sitter more often, scheduling date nights, improving couple communication – but nothing seems to help.
You feel stuck… your client feels frustrated and hopeless. What to do next?
Perhaps the sexual problem in the present relates to sexual trauma from the past?
How do you start exploring that possibility?
And what are the dos and dont’s to help survivors and their partners address the emotional and sexual impact of childhood abuse?
Watch renowned sex therapist Suzanne Iasenza, PhD, and learn how to assess childhood sexual trauma. Learn the signs you should be looking for and specifically what questions to ask — and what to avoid.
Once identified, how should treatment proceed? In this interactive live webinar Dr. Iasenza with share with you the approach she’s honed over many years helping individuals overcome deeply embedded sexual difficulties resulting from traumatic experiences.
You’ll be given a three-step approach that includes:
How to conduct a relational sexual history to assess for childhood sexual abuse.
Helping the clients (and partner) understand and manage the impact of trauma on their sex life.
Provide behavioral interventions that help the couple co-create sexual healing.
In this seminar, you’ll learn clinical techniques that help individuals and couples experience sexual healing. Case material will demonstrate an integration of couple systems and cognitive-behavioral approaches.
