One out of every three couples struggles with mismatched sexual desire---a formula for marital disaster. When one spouse is sexually dissatisfied and the other is oblivious, unconcerned, or uncaring, sex isn't the only casualty; a sense of emotional connection can also disappear. Helping couples bridge the desire gap can be challenging when one spouse appears unmotivated or lacks empathy. This speech presents a collaborative model for partners to work together to turn around the decline in their sex lives and reignite their emotional connection.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain how to end the vicious cycle of refusing sex which leads to anger, less desire and more refusal.
  2. Demonstrate coaching both partners about specific ways to alter their approach to increase their partner's empathy and willingness to change.
