Subtle consent issues undermine intimate connections and decrease desire.

In this course, AASECT-certified sex therapist Martha Kauppi will share two pre-recorded video lessons to deliver powerful strategies for working with subtle consent issues—helping build a repertoire of information, skills and tools for intervention.

You’ll discover:

  • Why it's important for therapists to be consent rockstars
  • How to recognize and address the nuances of consent that can cause mischief in relationships
  • How to intervene with subtle pressure for sex - and why intervention is critical 
  • Direct questions to help clients get in touch with what they want for themselves

You'll learn:

  • How and why I model consent in the therapy room
  • What consent actually means, how to give it, and how to ask for it
  • The difference between expressing an expectation for sex and a desire for sex -- and what it means to your partner

What You’ll Receive:

  • Two video lessons totaling 96-minutes of instruction on clinical skills for working with consent
  • The presentation slides
  • My script for a therapeutic conversation about desire discrepancy
  • My simple yet powerful Brief Assessment Tool for evaluating consent in your clients’ sexual interactions
