This workshop will offer an approach that addresses sexual problems through Narrative Relational Sex Therapy where therapists help clients identify and rewrite conscious and unconscious mistaken, negative narratives to reclaim pleasure, intimacy, and satisfaction in their erotic lives. Integrating psychodynamic, couple & family systems, and cognitive-behavioral sex therapy, this approach describes a way of understanding and addressing the complex interrelationship among personal, social, cultural, and familial sexual narratives.
- To describe various models of sexual response
- To conduct a detailed relational sexual history identifying conscious and unconscious sexual narratives
- To develop clinical interventions that integrate psychodynamic, systems, and cognitive behavioral approaches
