One of the most perplexing clinical moments for patients and therapists is a declaration of an absence of sexual attraction by one or both partners. Unlike sexual desire which can wax and wane over time, sexual attraction is often experienced as fixed and unchangeable. What is a therapist to do? How do we best understand the vicissitudes of sexual attraction over the lifespan of couples including the absence of attraction from the beginning of relationships to its decline over time. 

Utilizing a narrative approach which integrates psychodynamic, systems, and cognitive behavioral elements, Dr. Iasenza will discuss assessment and treatment techniques that help identify and transform intrapsychic, interpersonal, developmental, and environmental factors that contribute to this emotionally challenging presenting problem.
