NEI Human Sexuality Certificate Kicks of 2023-2024 with Anatomy off Couple’s Therapy

Want to learn to be a sex therapist? Already doing sex therapy and want to widen your skills? Looking for AASECT CE’s or New Mexico CEC’s? Check out Southwestern College/New Earth Institute’s Human Sexuality Certificate Program.

Our fall class is:
Anatomy of Couple’s Therapy
Saturday & Sunday, 10/14 & 10/15, 9am–6:30pm Mountain Time

DESCRIPTION: Drawing from the work of Resmaa Menakem, John & Julie Gottman, and Ester Perel, this course introduces participants to current theories and practices for working with couples. Particular emphasis is placed on helping clients develop a capacity for mutual recognition and empathic attunement, the capacity to renegotiate the relationship based on a more conscious understanding of each partner’s individual subjectivity and using Resmaa Menakem’s somatic concept of the five anchors for clients and therapists alike to remain present and effective during conflict. Connections between consent and pleasure, and the dichotomy of safety versus passion will be examined. Students are introduced to diverse ways of working with couples’ desire discrepancies, infidelities, and loss of interest.

Classes are offered via Zoom so you can take them from anywhere. They are synchronous so you do need to be able to attend the whole weekend.

I’ve been honored to be the Director of the Human Sexuality Certificate Program since 2021 and I love teaching these classes. Each time it is such an insightful and introspective group of students. Come join us!
