Couples Conference 1998

The annual Sexuality & Intimacy Conferences have become a leading vehicle for learning the applications of the latest research on facilitating treatment with couples who have problems in the areas of sexuality and intimacy.

Therapists are continually thrust into the tension of couples' colliding goals, values, interest and sexual desires. As couples therapists, we listen daily to conflicting demands and grapple with competing theories and interventions.

At this conference, you will see, hear and learn from leading-edge theorists and practitioners as they define, describe and discuss differing approaches that initially promote closeness and those that move toward managing difference and facilitating differentiation.

By the end of three days, you will have advanced and refined your own thinking about how to approach the challenge of facilitating intimacy and sexuality.
