Nov 13 (Wed) 2 pm – 5 pm – How Substance Abuse Affects Pleasure; Manage Addiction with Dr. Tammy Nelson

      • Participants will learn how drugs impact sexual function, including illegal so called recreational drugs, and legal, prescription and over the counter drugs.
        Participants will learn how substances affect sexual desire, arousal and function, the psychosexual functions, both physical and relational and the long term and temporary side effects. Participants will learn how steroids and performance enhancing drugs decrease sexual function over time, and how testosterone and sexual function are affected. Participants will have an overview of new drugs and older drug categories and their potential for treatment in and awareness for DSM categories. For those with sexual trauma histories, this may hold the most promise as a way to heal the brain of trauma memories and experience new pathways to pleasure. We will review the new potential for the future for sex and drugs, treating addiction and abuse as well as the ongoing search for new arousal and desire drugs.

Nov 15 (Fri) 9 am – 12 pm – Advanced Treatment with Eating Disorders, Body Image, and FAF with Dr. Tammy Nelson and Emma Kupferman, MSW, LICSW, LICSW-C

    • This advanced course on treating body image will take a deep dive into the effects of being in a large body size, and what this means re: gender, orientation, culturally, and economically. What does it mean to be large and a woman? What is the intersectionality of discrimination and prejudice because of gender and body type? What is the connection between body and socioeconomic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, and other identities?. Obesity is a feminist issue because women, specifically African American and poor women, are more likely than men to be obese. Therefore fat as feminism will be discussed, its features, favoritism, problems, and its explanations. The intersection of obesity with race and socioeconomic status, represents concerns over environmental policy issues and the ongoing theory of barrier weight – Women protect and avoid being an object of male gaze by making themselves less visible to male desires – may explain sexual trauma, but is it true? Or is there something else going on?

      • Today, couples in modern marriages are negotiating their monogamy in many creative and fluid ways.
