Six Workshops on Sex 

WORKING WITH PSYCHOSEXUAL ISSUES IN THERAPY

This course is intended for psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists who may work with couples and individuals who present in therapy with relationship and sexual difficulties. Psychosexual concerns are often central to the presenting issues in therapy, yet often go unexplored. The aims of the course are to enable therapists to develop a level of comfort to assess and identify such problems. The course material focuses on the integration of knowledge into practice thus enabling conversations on key areas of sexuality or sexual difficulties. The course will also focus on the therapeutic tools and essential skills required to effectively support clients to deal with such complex matters. There will be a strong emphasis on practical skills, experiential learning and debate.
Our first series of workshops was held in Dublin from October 2016 to May 2017. It was so successful that we’ve repeated it every year since, five times now. The most recent one was online.

Each workshop is designed to be standalone, however each workshop builds up into a comprehensive training.
