Summer Sexuality Series: Attachment without Attraction: Understanding Lost Sexual Attraction in Couples (June 5-June 26)

Upcoming Virtual Workshop:

Summer Sexuality Series: Attachment without Attraction: Understanding Lost Sexual Attraction in Couples

Suzanne

with Suzanne Iasenza, PhD

Wednesdays: June 5, 12, 19, and 26, 2024; 1:45pm-3:15pm

This event is approved for Approved for 6 AASECT CE + 6 NYS CE Credits

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.

About the Presenter: 

Suzanne Iasenza is a practicing psychologist who specializes in and writes on topics such as human sexuality, sex therapy for individuals and couples, sexual orientation and gender identity. She teaches at the Ackerman Institute for the Family, Adelphi University’s Derner Institute Postgraduate Program in Psychoanalysis, the Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, the Family Institute of Westchester, and the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy in NYC, where she co-founded the Sex Therapy Training Program (STP).

She offers study/consultation groups and individual consultation for mental health professionals. She has a private practice in psychotherapy and sex therapy in New York.

A Regenerative and Compassionate Approach to Working with Substance-Using Clients:

Harm reduction techniques, addiction medicine, and methods for supporting friends and family members assisting impacted loved ones

with Jen Levy, Ph.D, Sonya Lazarevic, MD, and Nicole Kosanke, Ph.D

POSTPONED

Approved for 4.5 CE Credits!

This is an interactive, multi-presenter day of programming for clinicians working with individuals and families with substance use challenges. This workshop will provide the essentials of a harm reduction/mindfulness approach with Jen Levy, Ph.D., how to use addiction and functional medicine with Sonya Lazarevic, MD, and treatment approaches for families and loved ones of those impacted by substance use issues with Nicole Kosanke, Ph.D.

Addressing Addictive Issues from a Harm Reduction Framework

Following an overview of the current status of the addiction treatment field, there will be a discussion of a harm reduction-informed approach that encompasses a range of positive change goals. Case presentations will address both the underlying meaning and function of addictive issues, along with offering mindfulness-based skills to support the change process. The impact of trauma on the development and treatment of addictive issues will be explored as well. Participants will learn practical skills to work with cravings and reduce risk through guided practices that can be applied in a range of clinical settings.

Conventional and Integrative Approaches in Addiction Psychiatry

The discussion will outline medications prescribed in stages of use, from abstinence to harm reduction, focusing on the most common substances of use. An integrative approach will be mapped out, including layers of care from a functional and regenerative approach. Psychotherapists' role as critical pieces in front-line engagement will be explored. A case example will be used to encourage an interactive discussion.

The Invitation To Change Approach: How to Help a Loved One Change

Being in a close relationship with someone who is using substances is often stressful and confusing. Outlining the Invitation to Change approach will highlight three major areas of research-based strategies for having a positive impact on a loved one: 1) understanding motivation and the change process in a constructive way, 2) using positive reinforcement and effective communication tools, and 3) practicing skills of self-awareness/compassion. Participants will learn practical applications within these categories for how clients can take care of themselves while also influencing a loved one in positive ways.

Expanding Dissociation Informed Psychoanalytic Practice:
How to make conceptual sense of Not-me, No-me, & Many mes

Johanna Dobrich

with Johanna Dobrich, LCSW

Friday, May 17th, 2024 7:00-9:00pm in-person at ICP

 

Approved for 2 NYS CE Credits!

In recent years, psychoanalysis has undergone a transformation away from an exclusive focus on repressive symptomatology to include dissociative symptomatology. Howell/Itkowitz's dissociative unconscious, Bollas' unthought known, Stern's unformulated experience, and my own unexperienced-experience, regularly appear as constructs in both our theoretical and clinical formulations. Yet there remains a lot of ambiguity about the differences between defensive and ordinary dissociation and the varied forms defensive dissociation in particular may take. Many times, people confuse dissociation as a defense from dissociation as a structure of the self. Taking Sullivan's understanding of the self as a system, I propose a continuum in which defensive dissociation may occur ranging from a more or less continuous self-system all the way up to a discontinuous self-system. I describe the difference between the 'dissociation of content' from 'dissociation as a structure of the self,' highlighting clinical phenomena people may come to recognize in their practice. I go on to elaborate on some of the structural features of 'dissociation as a structure of the self ’ and offer clinical examples.

About Presenter:

Johanna Dobrich is a licensed clinical social worker and graduate of ICP’s four-year psychoanalytic training program. She is on the Faculty at the ICP, the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center, and the National Institute for the Psychotherapies, where she teaches courses on trauma, dissociation, and contemporary psychoanalytic practice from a Relational perspective, as well as supervises candidates in training. She is the author of the book “Working with Survivor Siblings in Psychoanalysis” for which she received the 2023 Sandor Ferenczi Award from the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, and has authored numerous articles on dissociation, loss and mourning. Johanna is in private practice in New York, NY.

Adult Treatment

The Challenges of Working with Mixed-Status Immigrant Couples: Using IFS and Relational Approaches

with Rosa Bramble Caballero, LCSW-R

Saturday, April 6th from 10am-1pm on Zoom and in-person at ICP

 

Offered in-person and virtually via Zoom!
Approved for 3 CE Credits!

Immigration into the United States is fraught with challenges and traumatic experiences, largely unaddressed by couple’s therapy. The current anti-immigrant, socio-political atmosphere contributes to a climate where immigrants are seen as undesirable, and a threat to the economy, safety, and culture. Moreover, recent priorities for raids and deportation are affecting the everyday fabric of daily life for this population. Immigrant and mixed-status couples are experiencing traumatic stress affecting their relational dynamics.
The goal of the workshop is for participants to gain an understanding of how the IFS model provides the language and resources to help mixed-status couples heal the pre and post-migratory trauma. Through the use of case studies, the workshop will address the highly stressful and potentially traumatic experiences that immigrants undergo at different stages of the migration process, and IFS interventions that support the process of healing for the couple.

About Presenter: 

Rosa Maria Bramble Caballero, LCSW-R, is a Certified IFS Therapist. She’s the President of Caballero Consulting Services where she specializes in the treatment of trauma survivors. She is also L2 trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR, and Coherent Breathing. She facilitates supervision, and workshops and provides organizational capacity building in the areas of migration trauma, diversity and inclusion, maternal infant health, community violence intervention, and vicarious traumatization. Rosa was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and is bilingual in Spanish-English.

Virtual Workshop:

Navigating Asexuality in Clinical Practice

with Dr. Morag A. Yule, C. Psych

 

Wednesday, January 31, 2024; 7:00pm-9:00pm on Zoom

This event will be approved for 2 NYS and 2 AASECT CE credits

Asexuality is characterized by a persistent lack of sexual attraction, and asexuality is often an intrinsic part of an individual’s identity. Asexual people, often referred to as “aces,” may have romantic feelings and the spectrum of asexuality includes various identities and differing levels of interest in sexual activity.

This presentation delves into the understanding and incorporation of asexual identities in clinical practice, aiming to enhance practitioners’ competency in addressing the unique needs of asexual individuals and their partners. It begins by defining asexuality, challenging common misconceptions, and highlighting the diversity within the asexual community. The talk emphasizes the importance of differentiating asexuality from other conditions, such as hypoactive sexual desire disorder, and the implications for misdiagnosis and treatment.

Case studies and interactive discussions will facilitate a deeper understanding of how to support asexual individuals through informed, empathetic, and tailored care. By the end of this session, participants will be equipped with practical tools and insights to navigate asexuality in their clinical work.

About the presenter:

Dr. Morag Yule received her PhD in clinical psychology from the University of British Columbia (UBC) and completed her clinical residency at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto. She is the founder and director of Ontario Sex Therapy, a private practice in Toronto. Dr. Yule has been involved in sex research since 2005 and been providing psychotherapy and assessments for sexual difficulties since 2010.

She has published and presented widely in sexuality and was awarded multiple academic honours and awards throughout her graduate training. Dr. Yule is especially recognized for her ground-breaking studies of asexuality and its assessment.

Dr. Yule provides psychological services for a broad range of sexual issues. She has extensive training and experience treating sexual dysfunction, including problems with sexual desire, difficulty experiencing sexual arousal and orgasm, and sexual pain. She also works with those exploring sexual identity, struggling with hypersexuality/out of control sexual behavior, navigating atypical/unique sexual interests, and moving past difficult sexual experiences and sexual trauma. In addition to her specialization in treating sexual difficulties, has a particular focus on treating OCD with sexuality-related themes such as pedophilia OCD (POCD) and sexual orientation OCD (SO-OCD). She works with both individuals and couples and people of all genders and sexual orientations.

Dr. Yule is President of the Society for Sex Therapy and Research (SSTAR). She is also a full member of SSTAR, the International Academy of Sex Research (IASR) and the Canadian Sex Research Forum (CSRF) as well as the Ontario Psychological Association (OPA) and the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO).

Hybrid Workshop - Virtual & in-person at ICP:

The Complicated World of Family Cutoffs:

Causes, Interventions, and a Deeper Understanding

with Tracey Ross, LCSW & Judy Aronowitz, LCSW

 

Thursday, February 1, 2024, 7:00-9:00pm

This event will be approved for 2 NYS CE credits

 

Family estrangement is extremely widespread, affecting millions of people regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or class. As therapists, whether we are working with individuals, couples, or families, the pain and impact is something we regularly encounter in our clinical work. Often there is internal conflict, particular meaning attached to the loss of the relationship(s), and inter-generational damage, that seeps into current relationships. With a deeper understanding of the causes, impact, and paths to repair, we as therapists can intervene to create lasting change and support individuals and families in finding a path forward.

We will take a deep dive into this phenomenon and look at the genogram of a family in order to deepen our understanding of the clinical material and examine the personal, relational, inter-generational, and multi-cultural aspects of this phenomena.

About Presenters:

Tracy Ross is a couples and family therapist as well as an organizational psychologist. She has a focus and expertise in adult family therapy, particularly in the area of family cut-offs, as well as specialties in discernment counseling and collaborative divorce. She is a graduate of the Ackerman Institute, where she was a faculty member for 10 years on the Resilient Families project. In addition to her clinical practice, Tracy develops and presents courses throughout the country and consults with businesses and non-profit organizations on a variety of interpersonal and relational issues.

Judith Aronowitz started her career as a Pediatric Nurse before realizing she was most drawn to healing relationships.

Currently, she is in Private Practice in NYC working with Individuals, Couples, and Families. She is passionate about systems thinking and theories and along with Tracy Ross has developed courses on Family work and presents throughout the country.

Virtual Workshop:

Group Therapy for Eating Disordered Patients

with Andrea Schneer, LCSW

Friday, December 1, 2023, 12:00-2:00pm

Approved for 2 NYS CE credits

Eating disorder symptoms are understood to be metaphors that when deciphered, can shed light on the etiology and function of the symptoms. Trauma and neglect are part of that etiology. The symptoms express what is unknown, and/or unbearable for the individual to experience or to remember. Group topics include: “Mother=Food,” The Dinner Table,” “Health,” “Too much and Too Little.” The structure provides room to expand the patient’s thinking about what fuels the eating disorder thus providing opportunity for healthy responses. This workshop describes a series of groups devised in a Day Treatment setting for patients with eating disorders, adaptable to an outpatient group.
