Great Sex for Couples | In Person & Online with ICEEFT Trainer George Faller
1 May 2023 9:00 am - 5:00 pm AEST
Unleashing the power of sexuality in EFT helps therapists leverage the energy in the sexual cycle to create change.
Sex often triggers what is best and worst in relationships. Swinging from the highs of passion to the lows of rejection, sex offers us all plenty to engage with and talk about in session. Yet, most therapists are not taught how to facilitate these intimate conversations and harness the power of sexual connection to help secure the couples’ attachment.
Research demonstrates that the strongest bond for a couple includes an alive, vibrant sexual connection and a warm, secure emotional connection. Yet, nearly 70% of all couples therapists across every model do not talk about sex. Without comfort and confidence, therapists avoid resolving this critical part of their couple’s lives, leaving the couple alone to struggle and perhaps derailing all the good work accomplished in resolving the emotional bond. Couples too, avoid talking about this critical area in their lives due to embarrassment, hopelessness, shame or even taking their cue from the silence of the therapist.
Let’s stop avoiding sexual conversations and instead develop the confidence to lean into them. This workshop aims to help couple therapists understand how the emotional and sexual attachment cycles are integrated, help therapists become comfortable with talking about sex, learn a thorough sexual assessment, and work through blocks in the sexual cycle. Using role plays and videos, George will demonstrate effective sexual interventions. Come join us to harness the power of sexuality to help clients experience the power of great sex.
