Passion and romance are strongly linked to both relationship and personal well-being in committed relationships. We are drawn to the intense experience of romantic passion. In popular culture, this passion indicates that partners are soulmates who are meant to be together forever. Movies and fairy tales end at "happily ever after," but in real life, many couples struggle to maintain romance and sexual satisfaction in long-term relationships, causing anxiety and fear.
This webinar is for mental health professionals who work with couples and individuals in relationships. You can help couples understand the role of passion and romance in their relationship and how it can evolve over time. Certified Gottman Therapist Dr. Susan O'Grady shares how to help partners reconnect with each other to maintain their sexual bond and increase overall relationship satisfaction.
In this workshop you’ll learn:
1. Why passion and romance decline over time in committed relationships and how to help couples reestablish a deep and satisfying affectionate bond that includes desire, curiosity, attraction, and trust.
2. How to help couples understand the importance of romantic passion despite the inevitable challenges and why just suggesting they have more date nights will not improve sex and intimacy.
3. How implicit beliefs about sexual growth and passion decay can shape relationship well-being and erotic satisfaction and how to help couples understand that sexual satisfaction is gained from hard work and effort over the course of the relationship.
There will be a recording available to those registered 3-5 business days after the live event.
No CEUS will be offered for this presentation.
