It's often difficult to judge when and how to focus on issues of sexuality in our work with couples. This course offers practical techniques for helping couples talk about sex, increase the intimacy of their sexual relationship, and learn to design their own solutions to sexual impasses. You'll learn how to help couples be more playful, romantic, spiritual, and tolerant of differences in their erotic life together.
