Integrating Sex and Sexuality in Your EFT Couples’ Work

September 29 @ 9:30 am – 5:30 pm
Pasadena, California

Join Silvina Irwin, PhD, Certified EFT Trainer, Supervisor, and Therapist, and 
Lisa Blum, PsyD, Certified EFT Therapist and Supervisor Candidate
for this exciting EFT training!

Have you experienced the dilemma of helping couples achieve greater emotional connection through EFT, and yet found that this does not always translate directly into greater sexual desire, contact, pleasure and flexibility between the partners?  

This workshop will present a frame for understanding that dilemma, and offer approaches for more fully integrating sexual concerns into our EFT work, with the goal of helping couples take new risks with each other so that they can share a more vibrant sexual connection.  This workshop will include: how to decipher the map of a couple’s sexual cycle; understanding sexual responses and freezes within an attachment frame; interventions that help create a secure base of “safe touch”; and how to get our own natural therapist blocks to processing sexuality material out of the way.

Participants may earn 6 CE credits for attending the entire program. Partial credits will not be offered. LACEFT is approved by the American Psychological Association (APA) to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. LACEFT is also an approved provider of continuing education by the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) for LMFTs, LCSWs, and LPCs. LACEFT maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
