Radical Touch: Utilizing the Body as a Conduit for Overcoming Sexual Dysfunction and Intimacy Issues
Description: Touch continues to be a topic that divides the field of sex therapy. Many wonder how touch could ever intersect with psychotherapy, while others see it as integral to healing. When a strong triadic model is applied properly, touch in sex therapy can be powerfully transformative. This

session provides a thorough understanding of the mind-body connection and the association with sexual functioning; as well as how touch can be used safely, ethically, and clinically in sex therapy to heal sexual dysfunction and intimacy issues.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: demonstrate a thorough understanding of the mind-body connection and its relationship to sexual function as well as be able to recognize the importance of including the body in the healing process; identify how touch can be

utilized in psychotherapy in a safe, ethical and clinical manner.
