The Principles of Pleasure: Four Important Skills to Help Therapists Work with the Good Stuff in Rochester, MN

Earn 4 CEUs!  FREE for MAMFT members! $80 for non-members.

Most therapists get little-to-no training in how to address sexuality in their practice. This workshop will build your competence in working with sexual pleasure in a way that meets your clients’ needs. Even if you are not a sex therapist your clients will have questions and concerns about sexual health issues, satisfaction in relationships and their own bodies. Whether you work with couples or individuals, your clients care about increasing pleasure in their relationships and with themselves. This workshop will cover why pleasure is an important topic in the therapy room (spoiler alert-it increases positive health outcomes, self-esteem, and relationship satisfaction) and specific skills for handling these topics without embarrassment for you or your clients.  All skills presented are welcoming and inclusive of people of all genders, orientations, and relationship styles.

Fri September 7, 12:00pm - 4:00pm

Pasquale's Pizzeria

Thanks to Southwestern College and Self Serve

I had such a great time teaching a weekend intensive-The Anatomy of Couples' Therapy-at Southwestern College in Sante Fe, NM this March. Southwestern is a lovely place and I loved seeing some returning students from the last time I taught there. Therapy students looking for sexuality education should check out Southwestern's Sexuality Certificat Program. I managed to bring the snow with me from Minnesota but everyone there assured me it was very welcome as they were in the middle of a drought.

Self Serve is Albuquerque, New Mexico's sexuality resource shop. I have been lucky enough to teach here twice and each time has been a blast. This time around they were kind enough to host a book signing event for me. Later, I taught Turn On: Arousal Explained for Every Body.

If you live near Albuquerque, stop in to Self Serve and chat with their amazing staff of educators. If you live anywhere else, check out their online store or their fabulous podcast Show and Tell Sex.
