Helping Couples Navigate Sexual Difficulties: Existential-Humanistic Approaches (4 CEs)

Sunday, September 22, 2019 | 9 am to 1 pm EST
Presented by: Daniel Watter, EdD

This workshop will address the assessment and treatment of sexual difficulties from a couples’ treatment perspective.  The emphasis will be on those sexual difficulties that emanate from relational trauma, and are then triggered and re-created in current relationships.  Such difficulties as disruption in sexual arousal, orgasm, and/or desire will be examined through a sex-positive, existential-humanistic lens.  Assessment and treatment approached from an existential-humanistic lens represents a new model of assisting these couples through the alleviation of the distress that manifests itself within the sexual relationship.  Case examples will be presented to illustrate the efficacy of the sex-positive, existential-humanistic model of treating sexual conflicts within the context of couples’ therapy.

At the conclusion of the course, students will be able to:

  1. Describe the Existential-Humanistic Approach to the assessment and treatment of sexual problems;
  2. Describe and list the types of relational traumas that can result in sexual dysfunction;
  3. Demonstrate at least two techniques of the Existential-Humanistic Approach that are efficacious in the treatment of sexual difficulties within the context of couples’ therapy;
  4. Develop and conceptualize treatment plans for approaching the treatment of sexual problems using couples therapy as the primary treatment modality.

Sexuality in Later Life: Navigating the Sexual Challenges of Changing Bodies (4 CEs)
Sunday, September 22, 2019 | 2 pm to 6 pm EST
Presented by: Daniel Watter, EdD

As people are living longer, concerns about quality of life have taken on an increasingly prominent place in the lives of our patients.  One of the most frequently expressed concerns/frustrations with aging is how to manage the sexual changes that naturally occur in an aging body.  Such concerns have implications for both levels of self-esteem and relationship/intimacy maintenance and enhancement.  This presentation will address the myriad sexual dilemmas facing our aging patients, as well as suggest strategies the practicing psychologist can employ when working with such patients.

At the conclusion of the course, students will be able to:

  1. At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to discuss the sexual concerns common to aging psychotherapy patients.
  2. Participants will be able to apply treatment strategies based on an existential-humanistic treatment model.
  3. Participants will be able to analyze the ethical conflicts presented in our current focus of treatment for this population.
