Through case examples, Esther Perel, MA, LMFT will show how to effectively engage such issues as intimacy, sexuality and infidelity by creating separate spaces where each partner can explore his/her feelings and experiences along with larger relationship dynamics. We will show how to navigate privacy and secrecy, honesty and transparency, stage interventions around sexual impasses, and structure a safe and flexible therapeutic environment to work effectively with infidelity. Provide a multicultural perspective on differing notions of love, marriage and sexual behaviors, and to highlight the relationship between culture and sexuality.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Identify the common blocks to eroticism that preclude the pursuit of pleasure.
  2. Learn why increased emotional intimacy can lead to decreased sexual desire.
  3. Invert the traditional therapeutic priorities using the sexual relationship as a lens into the individual and the couple's dynamics.
