TELESEMINAR EVENTS NEXT WEEK WITH DR. MARTIN KLEIN
10 Good Reasons Couples Don't Enjoy Sex--
And Innovative Ways To Help Them
April 29, 2013
Power struggles. Narratives of failure. Normality anxiety. Inadequate initiation routines.
These are just some of the
reasons that couples don't enjoy sex. Our job is to see such dynamics,
communicate about them in helpful ways, and then offer alternatives--all
while helping couples feel safe and understood, and that we're not

Assessing couples' sexual ecology, and how they can change it
Enhancing the emotional skills couples need to create satisfying sex
The limitations of sex therapy's current function/dysfunction model
Therapists' assumptions that can make things worse
Helping couples see the choices they don't realize they're making--and helping them make different choices.
...in all, 10 good reasons that couples don't enjoy sex--and how you can help them.
like a lot to cover in one hour? It is! By the end, you'll have better
skills for addressing and resolving the reasons couples don't enjoy sex.
Use those skills, and your therapy will be more effective.
And as with every Marty Klein seminar, you'll be laughing while you learn.
One of my favorite
colleagues is psychotherapist Bill O'Hanlon, author of 30 books and one
of the world's greatest psychology teachers.

hopefully, life-changing conversations with our friend Alan Hutner,
co-host of Transitions Radio Magazine.
