Summer Sexuality Series - The Incredible Lightness of Becoming Erotic in Later Life: Lessons from Octogenarians (A Four Part Series)

June 7, 2023 @ 1:45 pm - 3:15 pm EDT

Summer Sexuality Series:

The Incredible Lightness of Becoming Erotic in Later Life:
Lessons from Octogenarians

with Suzanne Iasenza, PhD

Wednesdays, June 7, 14, 21 & 28, 2023; 1:45-3:15pm EST on Zoom

6 AASECT + 6 NYS CE credits available.

NOTE: This is a 4-part series, registration is closed.

U.S. Culture contains a plethora of desexualizing narratives about aging. Therapists and patients often buy into myths believing sex in later life is destined to be limited and disappointing. After years of substandard or non-existent sex in long-term relationships some seniors enter couple therapy feeling hopeless and skeptical that erotic life is possible especially as they experience the physical impact of aging.

This presentation will discuss how to identify and transform limiting cultural and personal narratives, thus creating potential erotic space within which couples discover erotic lightness and play. Case material will illustrate how to integrate new narrative frames and technique into therapy with senior couples.

About the Presenter:
SUZANNE IASENZA, PhD is on the faculties of the Adelphi University Derner Institute’s Postgraduate Program in Psychoanalysis, and the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy (ICP), where she also serves as Co-Director of the Sex Therapy Training Program (STP). She also teaches at the Ackerman Institute for the Family, the Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy and the Family Institute of Westchester. She maintains a private practice in psychotherapy and sex therapy in New York. Her latest book, Transforming Sexual Narratives: A Relational Approach to Sex Therapy was published by Routledge.
