Sex, Sexuality and Self in the Therapy Room

Two day course: Sat 1 and Sun 2 February 2020

Facilitator

Paul Redpath, PTSTA

Who is it aimed at?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and trainee therapists.

Course Outline

This will be a space to think and talk about sex. TA theory will be used to support thinking.

During the first day there will be an invitation to share some of your experience and to hear the experience of others to get a sense of what we share and where we might be unique. The second day will be used to reflect on the first day and to consider how you might respond when sex and sexuality appears in the therapy room.

Aims

The aim of this weekend workshop is to make us more comfortable thinking and talking about sex and sexuality in the therapy room. The more grounded we are in our sense of self regarding our sexuality the more comfortable we will be when a client wants to talk about sex. Sex is often an issue for couples and the more at ease you are in discussing it the better for your clients. Sex is an area where shame is to be found and we do not want to inadvertently confound that shame.

Learning Outcomes

To settle any fears around sex and sexuality.

To be able to discuss sex in a relaxed manner with clients.

To discuss sex and sexual feelings, erotic transference and counter-transference in supervision.

To recognise your sexual needs and to question if you are getting them met. Does this impact your work?

Think theory. How does sex and sexuality relate to Games and Script?

How might our Cultural Parent shape our sexuality and how we express it?

To increase our ability to work with difference.

Facilitator’s Biography

Paul has been a psychotherapist for around 25 years. He works with both individuals and couples and runs groups. He is passionate about working with couples and believes that every couple would benefit from a short course of therapy every few years a bit like a MOT.

He is deeply interested in how we can relate better to each other and sex is an area where we can feel our most connected and our most disconnected from ourselves and from each other.

His wish, hope and dream for the weekend is that at the finish we will feel connected by our experience.
