Introduction to training
Decline in sexual desire and mind-mapping:
A desirable step in the couple
The difference or decrease in sexual desire in a couple is inevitable with the progression of the relationship. In fact, not only is this stage normal, it is more desirable. This is considered a problem for couples who need to be treated or have a disorder to correct. In reality, this is quite the opposite, because we access an event of progression for the partners. This step, although difficult to cross, allows the couple to access more satisfying sexuality.
Health professionals providing psychotherapy services for couples find themselves with a relational issue that is very complex when dealing with sexuality and more specifically sexual desire. Loss or loss of desire is a difficulty for which many therapists have difficulty grasping the underlying elements that maintain the dynamic. Discuss with partners very thorny topics like normal marital sadism, sex out of pity,their emotional impasse,their 2 “choice-dilemma”, borrowed functioning and mind-mapping regularly makes the therapist uncomfortable too.
For health professionals (psychologists, marital and family therapists, sexologists, psychotherapists) offering psychotherapy to couples suffering from a difficulty related to sexual desire (absence, decrease, loss or difference). This training will help you explore in depth the dynamics that even therapists would prefer to avoid in therapy. This training will also address concrete ways to analyze and improve the dynamics of the relationship of the couple who consults. Neuroscience and brain plasticity will be discussed to demonstrate the validity of the approach. Theoretical concepts have also been demonstrated by empirical research. Read qualitative research of the evaluation of the approach.
