Course Description: It's a myth that if you fix a person's relationship that intimacy will automatically improve. In fact, often it's the other way around.

If you're working with a client who is struggling with their relationship or sex life, you'll want to be here for this all-new training.

Dr. Tammy Nelson, an expert sex and couples therapist, has developed a teachable process of working with individuals and couples who struggle with intimacy.

You will learn a unique 4-stage therapy process and how to develop an "erotic recovery plan." You will learn how to uncover where lack of desire originates in sexless and low-sex couples and how to treat individuals and couples using contemporary interventions and treatment models.

Through real case studies and real video demonstrations, Tammy will focus on all the areas that are often at the root of low- or no-sex marriages and the most effective strategies. In each of the four stages participants will learn interventions and tools that increase desire and improve arousal, increase pleasure and decrease anxiety around sexual performance and increase intimacy and connection.

This course is not just for couples therapists -- it's for any therapist who is working with clients who are struggling in relationships, individuals who feel a lack of sexual desire, or want to enhance their sexual relationships.

You'll walk away being able to help almost any client or couple to move toward long-term erotic recovery!

Learning Objectives:

  1. Examine core interventions for renewing desire, reviewing strategies for low desire couples.
  2. Utilize treatment strategies and current paradigms for relationships with no sex couples
  3. Explain how sexual and couple’s therapy can help with past, and underlying causes for sexless relationships
  4. Discover the integrative cognitive, relational and physical issues that cause desire disorders and how they manifest in relationships
  5. Assess for sexual traumas and integrate treatment priorities in a treatment plan focused on increasing desire
  6. Explore how relaxation, sexual empathy and erotic recovery help to heal low sex and no sex relationships
  7. Identify at least three types of pleasure resistance; pleasure avoidance, denial, and rejection and how these lead to sexual discrepancies
  8. Explore how control, betrayal, trust and identity issues effect eroticism in sexual partnerships.
  9. Utilize treatment interventions for arousal dysfunction due to affairs and other betrayals
  10. Explore erotic recovery, sexual empathy, and monogamy agreements as healing strategies
  11. Plan how to create an erotic recovery plan as a couples therapy intervention.

SEATING IS EXTREMELY LIMITED (12 participants) so this will sell-out quickly. Register today if you want to be there with Tammy!
