Jun 18 (Fri) 10 am – 1 pm (EST) – Overcoming Desire Discrepancy and Increasing Honesty in Couples when One Partner has ADHD – And Lessons for All Couples with Ari Tuckman

We will discuss the different ways that ADHD impacts relationships and sexuality, including high use of porn, and infidelity, and other barriers to sex. This course includes a discussion on sudden unplanned discoveries that can lead to sexual problems and avoidance. We will discuss how to help clients explore their own sexual desires, inquire about their partner’s hopes, and negotiate the differences. This includes helping partners clarify what is acceptable within their shared sex life as well as their solo sex lives, and how much disclosure is appropriate. We will pay particular attention to addressing shame, guilt, and lying so treatment outcomes include increased capacity for honesty between partners and with themselves. Couples with one ADHD partner can exacerbate the universal struggles that every couple needs to navigate and serve to highlight how to help all couples to negotiate more effectively.

Jun 18 (Fri) 2 pm – 6 pm (EST) – Perinatal Lessons: Exploring the Invitations for a Feminist Approach to Sexuality with Natashia Fuksman, MA, MFT

A common social myth about the postpartum time period is that the sexual pleasure of the parents drastically ends or at the very least decreases greatly. This workshop will explore perspectives of the perinatal parent with regards to their emotional, relational and physical experiences informing their belief structures about themselves as sexual beings. Concepts related to reproductive health and sexual pleasure that have been separated over time will be reviewed and considered from a feminist vantage point; the psychology of the perinatal time period for parents will be explored as it pertains to gendered roles, sexual function and the often unspoken new vulnerabilities of this life stage opening up invitations for new forms of intimate pleasure.
