Men, Women & Sex with Tammy Nelson, PhD

Stockholm, Sweden
February 14-15, 2014
Gender intelligence when working with couples takes the struggle and stress out of treatment for the therapist and for the couple. Knowing the differences in how men and women react to infidelity, sexual dysfunction, desire issues and how they relate to therapy are key to a successful treatment outcome. Participants will learn three phases of treatment recovery from infidelity as well as treatment protocol for out of control sexual behavior and long term sexual shut down.

Sexual Attitude Reassessment (SAR) Workshop – Sex for Therapists: Erotic Desensitization and Revision, Realities of Our Current Sexual World

March 19th, 2014, 9:00a – 8:00p
Courtyard Washington, DC / Foggy Bottom, 515 20th St NW
$695 before February 20th; $795 after. $695 for students. Price includes all handouts and CEs, morning coffee and afternoon snack.
Most therapists and professionals who work with sexuality face their own issues and countertransference around eroticism and intimacy as they start their career as sex therapists.  Treatment protocols are unclear and normally they rely on their limited training or their own personal experiences.  This can  bring up awkward and uncomfortable feelings that can create blocks in the therapy. The personal bias of the therapist also can confuse the real issues in treatment, and mirror pathology for  the client. In this SAR we will work through sexual issues, resistance, guilt and shame, and create ways to help challenge resistance around stereotypes, or old beliefs around sex.

Getting the Love You Want Workshops
This intensive two day Imago therapy workshop will help you create a more intimate connection with your significant other. Imago Therapy is based on the book Getting The Love You Want by Harville Hendrix (see Oprah’s website for more info about Imago Relationship therapy.)

This workshop can help you…..

  • If you want to be closer to your partner,
  • If you are starting a new relationship,
  • If you are healing a conflict in your marriage.

We will use written exercise, guided imagery and lecture and demonstrations. Alone with your partner you will practice communication skills, and do safe, confidential work together.
Practice skills needed for long term happiness in a safe and confidential environment with a Certified Imago Therapist…..

Next workshop:  TBA

Sex, Intimacy and Connection Workshops
In a safe workshop setting experience authentic communication to create intimacy and connection with your partner.

  • Learn how to talk about sex openly
  • Decrease fear and anxiety
  • Increase loving feelings toward your partner

Many couples breathe a sigh of relief after learning how to talk about their fantasies and fears, and the exercises in these workshops will benefit new relationships and recreate passion in long term partnerships.

Next workshop:  TBA

Intensives are private psychotherapy sessions for couples who are traveling from out of town and cannot make it to weekly sessions, or want a more in-depth experience. Like a couples workshop, we explore intensive ways to increase the connection and intimacy in your relationship, resolve conflict, and work through shame, guilt and anger in your partnership.

Working privately with a therapist for four to six hours, couples get the same benefit from the day of therapy that they would from a whole weekend of a couple workshop, sometimes creating dramatic and long lasting shifts in their relationship.

Special issues and conflicts can be focused on in an Intensive such as

  • Affair Recovery
  • Substance Abuse
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • ReSexualizing relationships
  • Grief Work
  • Pre-Marital Vision Quest
  • Second Marriage Preparation
  • Step Parent Coaching
