1. Professional Consultation Group
This is a 4-week consultation group for mental health professionals to expand their knowledge base and clinical skills when working with individuals and couples around the topic of sexuality. The format will be didactic, interactive, and involve group discussion. I will teach on a topic relating to clinical sexology for the first 15-20 mintues, and then open it up for general questions and consultation for current cases relating to sexuality. The intention will be to create a safe and confidential environment.
Total cost for the 4-week group: $350

Communicating about what we want and need sexually is one of the most difficult challenges and wonderful opportunities for growth that exists in the world of sexuality. As our clients move through different ages and phases, and have the experience of being both partnered and single, the skills needed for good sexual communication change. We can better serve our clients if we become informed and comfortable with this topic.
In this workshop, we will examine what gets in the way of sexual communication (both clinically and in personal relationships), what are the unconscious patterns that shape our words or willingness to begin these intimate conversations, and what are the gifts we hold that can help us communicate better. Topics to be discussed will be the challenge and discomfort around words and language, how we set boundaries, safer sex conversations, communicating during sex, how to handle miscommunication, and the value of debriefing for couples. There will be a balance of lecture, discussion, and interactive exercises.
