Webinars and Home Study for Marianne Brandon, Ph.D.

 
Sexual intimacy is considered by many to be a critical aspect of a healthy romantic relationship. Amid a social focus on sexuality that sometimes seems to border on the obsessive, sexual concerns and dysfunctions are common in both general and clinical populations. Indeed, love-making embodies the most intimate and vulnerable experiences of our client’s lives. However, discussing and treating these issues in the therapy room can be challenging for therapists. Most therapists have not had the benefit of training in the fascinating and complex nature of human sexuality to feel confident addressing these topics.

In this talk we will review the common sexual concerns and dysfunctions of heterosexual couples, and arm general
therapists with treatment options for men, women, and couples. This talk stands alone but is Part Two of a two-part series
on sex therapy for the general therapist. It is recommended that this lecture on treatment be completed as the second in that series, thus enabling the therapist to place treatment issues in a more general sexual context.

“This was an excellent presentation that I think had information important to generalists that we don't often receive."-Krista B., Psychologist, Maryland

Who we are as sexual beings carries profound personal and interpersonal meaning for each of us.  Like it or not, our sexual self-image significantly impacts our broader sense of identity, as well as how we give and receive love in our most cherished relationships.  Research consistently demonstrates that for most people, sexual satisfaction is a critical component of relationship and life satisfaction.  For many people, love-making is the most intimate aspect of their lives.  Yet without specific focus on sexuality, general therapy tends not to alleviate sexual concerns.  As therapists, we have little training in these issues, making it difficult to assist our clients with their intimacy struggles.  In this talk, we will address the changing face of heterosexual sex that we and our clients are all experiencing – and gain an understanding of the “new normal.” 

This talk stands alone but is Part One of a two-part series on sex therapy for the general therapist.  It is recommended that this lecture be completed first in that series, thus offering a context for the treatment approaches addressed in Part Two.
