Intimate love relationships are fundamental to human well-being. Attributes that enhance intimacyunderstanding, affection, playfulness, and sexual pleasureare associated with increases in oxytocin, dopamine, and other hormones that reduce stress and promote health and resilience. Sexual aliveness in long-term relationships fosters feelings of romantic love and contentment with oneself and one's partner.
This workshop reviews relevant research in positive psychology and the science of flourishing that is useful for helping clients build skills that nurture loving feelings and sexual pleasure. It offers a therapeutic model for working with individuals and couples on relationship and sexual issues that blends cognitive and somatic methodology.
The focus of this didactic and experiential training is on both personal growth and professional development. The experiential part of the workshop includes present-centered body-based Gestalt processing, breath and body attunement, and visceral and sensory perception exercises that inspire insight, reduce stress, and enhance ability to enjoy feelings of love and sexual pleasure.
