Pleasure is the measure: Maximizing your clients' sexual well-being

 

Workshop Presenter

Emily Nagoski, Ph.D. is passionate about bringing accurate, current sexuality research to professionals and the public. Her New York Times best-selling book, Come As You Are: the surprising new science that will transform your sex life has been hailed as a groundbreaking, important exploration of the science of sexuality. 

 

After earning her masters and doctoral degrees (in counseling and health behavior, respectively) from Indiana University, Emily Nagoski has contributed to the academic understanding of sexual well-being through her research on risk, individual differences, and environment.  Her TEDx talk, conference presentations, and public workshops are hailed as clinically relevant, intellectually challenging, and highly engaging. 

 

Workshop Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the relevance of the dual control model to sexual desire and pleasure;
  2. Describe the relationship between negative affect (depression, anxiety, etc.) and sexual functioning, in terms of the dual control model;
  3. Identify the multiple facets of the mesolimbic cortex—liking, wanting, and learning;
  4. Explain arousal non-concordance—why a person’s genitals might respond to stimulation that is neither wanted nor liked—and the implications of this phenomenon on clinical intervention;
  5. Differentiate between responsive and spontaneous desire, and explain their relevance to differential desire in couples
