Description

  • Positive Functions of Marital Sexuality
  • Couple Assessment & Individual Sexual Histories
  • Core Change Strategies
  • Relapse Prevention Strategies & Techniques
  • Sexual Poisons & Inhibitions

When sexuality becomes dysfunctional or nonexistent, the powerful role it plays effectively drains a marriage of both intimacy and satisfaction, often threatening the viability and stability of that marital bond. The purpose of this intensive seminar is to enhance your couple therapy skills by identifying strategies to confront this multi-causal, multidimensional phenomenon of low-sex, no-sex marriages. Dr. McCarthy will address cognitive, behavioral, emotional, biological, relational, and situational factors necessary to design a multidimensional assessment and intervention program. He will also discuss various factors, including health, medications, sexual secrets, and aging which impact a couple’s sexuality.
