2015 Psychotherapy Networker Symposium: The Colors of Tomorrow

March 26-29, 2015 in Washington, DC  – Join me!

A conference with over 100 top names in the field of psychotherapy exploring timely issues and the newest developments in psychology and counseling, psychiatry and behavioral health. Many of the workshops are hands-on practical learning experiences that help build skills and impact the world of health care and private practice.

122 Expanding Your Sexual Comfort Zone – Thursday All Day

Working with sexual issues in therapy and the often edgy erotic behavior people engage in today can challenge a therapist’s own values and deeply held beliefs. As an introduction to sex therapy, this workshop will include videos, demonstrations, and small-group discussion around sexual practice, providing essential training to help therapists face their own pre-conceived notions and countertransference issues around eroticism and intimacy.

  • Work through your own sex-related stereotypes, resistance, guilt, and shame as foundation for creating a safe, comfortable non-judgmental environment for clients
  • Learn about alternative sexual practices, open monogamy, fetishes, BDSM, paraphilias, cross-dressing, and a range of other behaviors
  • Process responses, triggers, and any vicarious trauma that may be triggered by issues around pornography, sexual exploitation, and other erotic practices
  • Expand your ability to communicate about sexual issues in the consulting room

321 – The New Monogamy – Friday Afternoon

Monogamy is no longer the traditional agreement it was in the past generations. Couples today are negotiating their monogamy in new and creative ways involving different types of sexual commitments and, as a result, different types of issues around betrayal.

As therapists, we need to understand this new trend, the challenges it brings, and the skills it requires of us. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  • Identify many types of traditionally monogamous relationships with open sexual behaviors as well as nontraditional monogamous arrangements, including polyamorous, open, semi-open, and sex partnerships online
  • Help clients develop a Code of Honor that will define their monogamy as one of integrity and honesty, even if it involves a departure from traditional sexual fidelity
  • Coach clients on how to negotiate prenuptial and postnuptial monogamy arrangements and how to renegotiate a new one after infidelity
  • Explore conscious uncoupling (or intentional divorce) counseling techniques to help couples end their marriage without animosity or shame

I have been invited to give a “Flash Talk” as part of the Forum on Couples Therapy: Advances and Changes in Couples Therapy Today. I am speaking on one of my favorite topics, “Monogamy in the Internet Age.” (A Flash Talk is the conference’s version of the popular TED Talks.) I am also giving a sexy All Day presentation during the pre-conference Creativity days on “Expanding Your Sexual Comfort Zone” and a workshop on “The New Monogamy” on Friday. Check out other Symposium events here – including my lectures and Flash Talk.

If you want to rejuvenate yourself or your practice, join me at the Networker Symposium!

Workshops & Private Couples Intensives

  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 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
