Easy-to-apply therapeutic approaches will be discussed in greater detail during this expanded 3-hour workshop to assist women/couples with desire issues, as well as common arousal-inhibiting challenges. Multiple dimensions (12 “T’s”) will be addressed to help couples pay greater attention to the contextual factors of sexual desire and arousal. Having these tools will help couples be able to identify and address the specific areas needing attention, allowing for greater emotional connection and sexual satisfaction.
