Integrative Sex & Couples Therapy: Innovative Clinical Interventions to Treat Relationship & Desire Issues in the New Era of Sexuality in Psychotherapy



80% of all clients in psychotherapy will complain about their dissatisfaction with either their relationships or their sex lives. Are you equipped to handle these issues as they arise?

The traditional models of dealing with relationships and sex aren’t working, and all clinicians need practical interventions to address these basic problems that almost all clients struggle with at some point in their lives.

Integrative Sex and Couples Therapy is essential for all therapists at any level of experience and for every population.

You don’t need to work with couples to utilize these interventions and help clients in your practice.

Watch Tammy Nelson, Ph.D., internationally acclaimed psychotherapist, Board Certified Sexologist, Certified Sex Therapist and Certified Imago Relationship Therapist in this ground-breaking recording, and she’ll walk you step-by-step through the phases of her new model of integrated sex and couples therapy treatment so you’ll leave this seminar better equipped to work with your most challenging cases.

With Dr. Tammy’s expert guidance, you’ll learn practical interventions you can use to help clients improve their relationships, balance desire discrepancies, work through betrayal and feel more passionate. You’ll also learn how to avoid professional dilemmas, such as countertransference, projection and hopelessness —which lead to frustration for both you and your clients.
