Mar. 16: Romantic Chemistry and Its Discontents: Assessing and Treating Lost Attraction in Couples. Zoom. $220 ($190 for members), 6 CEs. Presenter: Suzanne Iasenza, Ph.D., CST (Certified Sex Therapist). 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? How can therapists co-create safe therapeutic space to promote change in one of the most elusive of human experiences? Utilizing an integration of psychodynamic, systems, and cognitive behavioral approaches, Dr. Iasenza will discuss assessment and treatment techniques that help identify and transform factors bearing on lost sexual attraction in couples. This program is sponsored by the Psychodynamic Couple and Family Institute of New England. Register for this program at https://www.pcfine.org.
