Expanding Sexual Frames in Theory and Practice in Couples Therapy
Sexuality issues are often the elephant in the room in couple therapy. Some couples therapists feel unprepared to delve into sexual issues because they have not had sufficient training in human sexuality. Others feel challenged by the complexities and mysteries of common presenting problems such as the effects of trauma on sexuality or the influence of desire on couple sexuality. Suzanne Iasenza, PhD will provide expansive models of sexual response, how to conduct a therapeutic sexual history, and co-creating expansive therapeutic frames that include new approaches to standard sex therapy techniques. The presentation will use case material to illustrate the integration of systems, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral thinking as well as the nuances of working with same-sex and gender variant couples.
