Emotions, attachment and body: connecting sexually and emotionally through EFT
Many couples presenting for couples therapy may complain of sex issues: discrepancies in desire, lack of attraction or sexual compatibility, arousal or orgasm problems, or challenges in the bedroom after having children, going through infidelity or in the wake of trauma, or considering and dealing with insecurity around non-monogamy. From the perspective of Emotionally Focused Therapy, such complaints are most often part of an underlying lack of security and bond in the relationship caused by the negative cycle between partners.
At times, as the partners de-escalate and become more secure, sexual issues remain unresolved. Yet, many EFT therapists lack knowledge and skill in the area of sex assessment and intervention.
Introduction to up to date research on sexuality relevant to EFT work with couples will be presented. You will learn how to do a thorough assessment of the negative relational and sexual cycle so you can skillfully use EFT interventions to help couples move toward de-escalation. This workshop will also address how to integrate psycho-education and simple behavioral sex therapy interventions as couple begins to move into Stage 2, while at the same time to continue building secure bond through increased vulnerability.
This workshop will include lecture, video examples, and experiential exercises.
