What is or is not taking place between the sheets is often a window into the couples relation- ship, and visa versa. It provides the therapist with a wealth of information on areas such as: the power dynamic in the relationship, comfort with intimacy and closeness, any trauma in one or both partners’ history, any unresolved anger in the couple, if either partner is struggling with depression, and the list goes on. Sexuality is an inextricable component of a couples relation- ship, and therefore, to leave it out of therapy is to neglect one of the primary means of communication between partners and a basic need as humans. This course is designed to help clinicians understand its importance as well as learning how to include it in the conversation in a way that feels comfortable and engaging rather than awkward and alienating.
