Sex Made Simple: Navigating the Intimate Issues

Do you freeze up when your clients bring up conversations about:

  • low sexual desire
  • extra-marital affairs
  • misuse of porn
  • anxiety about not having the right kind of orgasm
  • how to heal from sexual trauma
Clients consistently report they wish they could have raised sexual concerns in therapy. These discussions are uncomfortable for both therapists and clients alike!

With this new online course you will learn to feel confident with open sexual discussions, providing psychological, biological, and relational sexual information, and utilizing psychosexual strategies and techniques to resolve sexual problems. You will also determine how to steer through your own values and beliefs while maintaining an open mind for the sexual issues in therapy and the often edgy erotic behavior people engage in today.

Working with Couples When Pornography is an Issue
Marty Klein, Ph.D.
The popularity of today's free pornography contributes to conflict between many porn users and their partners. Many clinicians depend on personal experience, their own values, and psychology's gender stereotypes and sex-negativity when dealing with these cases. This can lead to interventions we wouldn't consider in similar non-sexual situations — taking sides, pathologizing one partner while legitimizing the other, diagnosing "porn addiction" without sufficient information. This often results in treatment errors and premature termination.

When you develop "pornography literacy" you can support both porn consumers and their partners.

Sexual Intelligence: 10 Things Every Therapist Needs to Know About Sex
Marty Klein, Ph.D.
When people come in and the presenting problem is sex, do you know what you need to know about affairs, desire, pornography, fertility, S/M, “sex addiction,” arranged marriages, aging, cybersex, and orgasm? And when the presenting problem isn’t sex, do you know how to deal with the ways sexuality can interface with issues of power, anxiety, intimacy, guilt, shame, and isolation?

Most therapists don’t understand, that helping clients feel sexually “normal” undermines treatment rather than supporting it. In this bonus recording, participants will acquire new tools to interpret, influence, and treat patients’ sexual decision-making — without stripping sex of its richness, darkness, and adulthood.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Clients
