Desire discrepancy is treatable.

Here's a practical plan for working with clients who experience differences in desire.

In this 90-minute webinar, originally produced by the Couples Institute, AASECT-certified sex therapist Martha Kauppi shares specific skills for working with tough desire differences by giving you an in-depth look at a real-life case, so you can see exactly how she discusses this with clients.

You’ll discover:

  • Why desire issues are so hard to shift - and how we can overcome the challenges
  • Three components which are absolutely critical for creating pleasurable sexual interactions
  • Essential skills to help your clients get in touch- and stay in touch- with their arousal

You'll learn:

  • My methods for assessing sex issues in therapy - hear the exact questions and language I use
  • How to intervene - effectively and warmly - when one partner pressures the other for sex
  • How to help clients strengthen their differentiation muscles… and why this makes all the difference

What You’ll Receive:

  • A 90-minute recorded presentation on advanced clinical skills for working with desire discrepancy 
  • The presentation slides
  • An infographic outlining my Will Lily Brief Assessment
  • A History of Present Problem infographic
  • 1.5 CEUs approved by American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT)*

That was the most applicable training in desire discrepancy I've ever taken. Well done, Martha. I feel ready to take this dynamic on!

This is my first sexual health training and I am bowled over by the rich content and Martha's level of comfort with any question or issue. Just this brief webinar is creating a new neuropathway for me as a therapist away from sexual shame and towards more competence for me and my clients!

Martha has an incredible talent to teach complicated material in a digestible way. Every time I have heard Martha present, I have implemented what I have learned in my sessions right away.

Kelly Scharver, Couples Counselor, Virginia

Martha kept me very focused and engaged throughout the training. I found the case example in "Not Tonight, Dear" Part 2 to be very interesting. I used to work primarily with clients who had sexual trauma histories, so I have a strong understanding of the importance of a trauma informed approach.  This training will help me build on what I already know so that I can be more effective with couples facing desire discrepancies who are also impacted by sexual trauma components.
