This interactive session will train attendees to utilize a comprehensive treatment model specifically designed to treat couples who present with a wide variety of problems, including sexual symptoms. The model is based on master conflict therapy (MCT), an integrative approach that combines psychoanalytic conflict theory and psychodynamic family-of-origin work with basic principles and exercises of sex therapy. Detailed case studies will be utilized for illustration.
Participants will be able to define MCT and identify its many key factors including19 different master conflicts which underlie a couple’s symptoms, including sexual symptoms.
Participants will be able to engage in a culturally competent assessment of couple's presenting for treatment, and learn a quick and accurate way to assess couples with sexual and non-sexual problems.
Participants will learn a new way of integrating sex therapy and couples therapy using the five stage treatment process, and will learn a quicker and more effective way to bypass a couple's defensive structure.
