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

Suzanne

with Suzanne Iasenza, PhD

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).

How to be Human & a Therapist in Challenging Times:

Breathwork as Self-Care for Therapists

with Charlene Rymsha, LCSW

Saturday, May 11th, 2024, 2-4pm on Zoom

Approved for 2 CE Credits!

During this 2-hour workshop, you will learn about the magic and science of Breathwork and how it can help you as a therapist decrease stress and foster a deep sense of mental well-being. Through the integration of mind and body, the session begins informational and moves into an experiential one. You will be guided through a full-length Breathwork session to gain an embodied understanding of the power of this self-care modality. Breathwork is very safe for most people, yet please review the listed contraindications. Even with a contraindication, you can still attend and receive benefits from the workshop because an alternate breathing technique will be provided for those unable to do the more activating practice. If you prefer to participate in the full Breathwork experience, please contact your healthcare provider in order to receive prior medical clearance.

Breathwork Contraindications: Angina, Cardiovascular Disease, Hx Heart Attack, High Blood Pressure,
