About the Workshop:

One of the most common presenting issues in relationship therapy (and individual therapy) is that of mis-matched libidos.

Often people wanting more sex are looked upon as selfish and deviant in some way.

Those with lower libidos are castigated and told they “should” feel like sex because “everybody else” does.

This workshop is designed to help practitioners work with couples facing the challenges of differences in sexual expectations.

 

 What the Workshop Covers:

  • Attitudes, Beliefs and Behaviours
  • Desire and arousal models
  • Factors that influence desire and arousal
  • Different libido/sexual personalities that people have
  • Developing a sexual menu
  • Negotiating sex for couples
     

Learning Outcomes

1.     Understand different sexual personality types

2.     Understand the difference between spontaneous and responsive desire

3.     Ability to coach couples to accept difference

4.     Frameworks and suggestions for couples to use when negotiating or talking about sex.

People find it so difficult to talk about sex yet it is such an important part life. In the words of Shirley MacLaine sex is hardly ever about sex! It’s easy to pathologise dysfunction and treat sexual issues in isolation, yet they very rarely occur outside of people’s lives and relationships.

Participants will learn why sex is so important and teach them methods to allow them to communication and an open and relaxed way with their clients, patients or even their own loved ones!  Tanya will include holistic influences from clients lives as well as sitting with the emotions that may come up for them.

THIS WORKSHOP WILL COVER

  • Relationship pulse check: communication, patterns (useful and not useful)
  • Sexual expectations/beliefs/meanings and their impacts on libido, performance, relationships and self esteem
  • Factors affecting desire in men and women and give an introduction to arousal systems.
  • Some treatment examples
  • Tips on how to make time and space for intimacy in long-term relationships
