Workshop Description: Understanding sexuality is a crucial part of therapy. Dominant therapeutic sexual models focus on performance and functioning. While men can relate to this model many women do not. The emphasis in this workshop will be around the female perspective with take away knowledge that can be easily implemented into your practice. The focus will be on leading experts in the field, Emily Nagoski, Ph.D and Gina Ogden, Ph.D. The scientific research and the experiential experiences of both of these experts will be combined for you to explore and better understand your female client’s sexuality.

Workshop Objectives: There are two learning objectives for this workshop. The first objective is for the clinician to better understand the female client’s sexual perspective, including the knowledge that most women do not relate to a performance or functioning based model. Emily Nagoski’s scientific research and Gina’s Ogden’s 4-Dimensional Model will be used to provide a more expansive understanding. The second learning objective is to provide clinicians with tools to implement when working with women’s sexual concerns. The tools will include approaches to assist the client in joining with the clinician to make work around sexual concerns more effective.
