You cannot separate sexual growth from personal and relationship growth. By trying to keep our sexual space ‘hurt and risk free’ we actually create the potential for much bigger dangers over time. Keeping your sex life alive means looking at things that are risky to face AND having risky conversations.
There are many cultural beliefs about sexuality that influence us. The more we are in touch with the potential of Eros as well as our own Edges and Unconscious bias around Sexuality and Intimacy, the better we can serve our clients.This Skills Share is part of a series focusing on growing our awareness as therapists of:
– Common edges and dynamics around sexual and intimacy issues
– Expanding our lens in working with sexual and intimacy issues
– Exploring our own relationship to our unconscious bias and edges around sexuality and intimacy and how to use that awareness in working with clients
