    Category 1 | 3 CEUs per session

    DESCRIPTION: 

    This workshop explores the intersection of sexual and emotional intimacy for couples experiencing low sexual desire in one or both partners. A treatment model of intervention will be presented. We’ll discuss various factors that could result in low desire and consider the initial options for beginning therapy. We’ll then examine the most common reasons why therapy stalls or breaks down and the interventions most likely to lead to resolution.

    Helping couples who struggle with their sexual relationship requires multiple skill sets. Cognitive behavioral sex therapy skills are essential, yet often not sufficient. When a couple gets stuck, it’s usually because underlying emotional factors are interfering. This treatment model includes interventions that can be used to explore deeper emotional factors which may be contributing to the impasse. Didactic, case example and interactive methods will be utilized.

    Learning Objectives:

    Participants will be able to:

    1. Name three possible reasons why someone might develop low sexual desire
    2. What are three educational components that are helpful for couples in developing a sustainable sexual relationship.
    3. Identify three possible interventions to address low desire
    4. Name three aspects of a treatment model to build emotional and sexual intimacy in a couple.

    SPECIFIC AGENDA:

    Introduction

    Define low desire in men and women

    Educational components of treatment

    Interventions: Behavioral approach and a model for addressing underlying emotional factors

    Demonstration of an aspect of the treatment model followed by discussion

    Q and A

    Category 1 | 3 CEUs per session

    DESCRIPTION: 

    If you suddenly were to become incapacitated, due to injury, illness or death, who would contact your clients? Which details of your condition would you want your clients to know and who should tell them? What arrangements would need to be made for your clients and your place of work?

    Just as it is important for an individual to write a will to protect personal assets and provide for his or her dependents, it is also prudent for a clinician to prepare for an untimely or unanticipated inability to carry out their functions at work. The purpose of this course is to help clinicians anticipate the needs of their clients and their business or the organization where they work, should such an emergency arise. Participants will identify and recruit individuals who could step in if needed. Between the two meetings, you will begin writing instructions for your “professional executors,” covering topics such as how to contact your current clients, gain access to and retain your treatment records, and oversee billing and banking.

    Teaching modalities will include discussion, reading and a writing assignment. In drafting this document, clinicians typically encounter a number of ancillary tasks they must perform, such as copying keys and shredding records. The process can be both tedious and time-consuming. To assist participants in completing and distributing their emergency instructions, the class will meet for two sessions, to provide structure, support and an opportunity to problem solve together. Participants will read some short articles. The class will meet for two three-hour sessions.

    Learning Objectives:

    Participants will be able to:

    1. Identify and describe legal and ethical issues pertaining to an unplanned interruption in the clinician’s practice
    2. Address ethical principles regarding confidentiality in informing patients of the interruption
    3. Apply ethical principles in selecting individuals to carry out necessary clinical and business tasks
    4. Apply records retention requirements as mandated by the therapist’s jurisdiction
    5. Recruit suitable individuals to carry out necessary clinical and business tasks in a professional manner
    6. Draft instructions which spell out procedures these individuals are to follow and provide detailed descriptions of how to find needed information

    Participants may attend any number of sessions.

    SPECIFIC AGENDA:

    Session 1 - September 27, 2019 - Category 1 | 3 CEUs

    12:30 Introduction

    12:45

    • Address resistance to believing such a disaster can occur, our distaste for considering this possibility and unwillingness to prepare for it
    • Share stories of such events and outline thoughts and concerns regarding our own mortality
    • Help each participant identify her or his salient concerns regarding their place of work, their clients and their colleagues

    2:00 Break

    2:15

    • Help each participant identify suitable “executors”
    • Help each participant develop a format directing their “executors” to carry out their instructions
    • Assign participants to begin drafting a set of instructions to bring to the second meeting

    3:45 Homework: Write a first draft to bring to the next session. Adjourn

    Session 2 - October 18, 2019 - Category 1 | 3 CEUs

    12:30

    • Discuss progress on writing this draft; strategize how to surmount obstacles
    • Identify the major concerns participants encountered in drafting their instructions
    • Discuss identifying individual(s) to serve as “executor(s)” and asking them to serve in this capacity

    • Address the needs of co-workers and colleagues
