Finding The Sex You Lost: Transforming Limiting Beliefs

  • PPSC, 80 Fifth Ave, Suite 903A NY, NY 10011 (map)

This talk has been approved by New York State for 2 hours of Continuing Education Credit for LMSWs & LCSWs. Lecture will led by Sylvia Rosenfeld LCSW.

This workshop will explore how the repressive and conflicting messages we receive from family, religion, and culture, whether explicitly related to our sexuality or not, limit our potential for sexual feeling, meaning, curiosity, communication, empathy, and pleasure. The Imago concept of the Lost Self will be discussed to show how these messages impact our core sexual self, our choice of partner and our erotic dance in relationship. Through lecture and experiential exercises participants will explore the messages that dictate sex-negative myths and beliefs. They will leave with tools for helping their clients reclaim their sexual selves, and expand their sexual repertoire.

Learning objectives- At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

1. List at least four ways negative cultural/familial beliefs and messages impact sexual pleasure and satisfaction.

2. Utilize 2-3 tools that can help their clients reclaim their sexual self, and expand their sexual repertoire.
