Sex as a Safe Adventure | Webinar

June 24, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Zoya Simakhodskaya | Sex as a Safe Adventure: Connecting Sexually and Emotionally through EFT
Do your couples present with complaints of sexual issues, such as:

  • Discrepancies in desire
  • Boredom in the bedroom
  • Discovery of out of control sexual behaviors
  • Arousal or orgasmic problems
  • Sexual challenges after having children
  • Trouble after infidelity or in the wake of trauma

This workshop is designed to give you a strong foundation where sexual issues are the presenting problem in couple therapy.  Introduction to up to date research on current models of sexuality will be presented.  You will learn how to do an assessment of both the negative relational cycle and the sexual cycle so you can skillfully work using EFT interventions with both cycles to help couples move to de-escalation. This workshop will also address how to integrate psycho-education and simple behavioral sex therapy interventions as couples begin to move into Stage 2, while at the same time continuing to build a secure bond through increased vulnerability.  Video segments will be used to demonstrate this work.
