A sense of self-efficacy is key to our client's ability to identify their strengths and establish meaningful goals for change in any aspect of life. This principle certainly applies to intimate relationships, the quality of which is almost always of fundamental significance to a client's overall sense of wellbeing. 

 Research shows that an individual's ability to comfortably talk about sexuality is correlated with achieving health, happiness, and satisfaction across the life course. Yet few therapists have been trained how to engage in dialogue with clients to identify issues and establish treatment goals directly related their behavior within and experience of  intimate relationships.

This interactive workshop will provide you with new assessment tools you can use to help your clients understand their own unique sexuality and sexual expression, with reference to the domains of power, pleasure, protection and intimacy.  Learning to better understand and more skillfully respond to the cultural and spiritual aspects of a client's context will also be discussed.
