Sex in the Windy City two day event

September 29-30
Adler University, Chicago

As mental health professionals who work with couples and families, sex is going to come up as a presenting issue. Whether we are doing sex therapy, helping couples and families deal with issues around sexuality or helping clients face sexual trauma, we need the tools and knowledge to effectively help our clients.

IAMFT is here to help with our two-day event, “Sex in the Windy City” being held at Adler University in downtown Chicago on September 29-30.

Whether you are able to join us for one day or both days, you will hear from a diversity of speakers with expertise on topics such as helping couples work through painful sex, helping couples discuss their sexual history, the importance of queer language, working through sexual trauma and how reality TV affects our view of healthy sexual relationships.

This program will provide a practical understanding of how to apply the Integrative Systemic Therapy (IST) perspective in your work with individuals, couples, and families. Participants will be invited to reflect on their preferred models of therapy and consider options for what they can do when what they are doing isn't working. The presenters, authors of Integrative Systemic Therapy in Practice: A Clinician's Handbook, will provide guidelines and frameworks for expanding practice and increasing flexibility in the selection of interventions with complex cases and diverse populations.
