Dr. Justin Lehmiller

Dr. Justin Lehmiller

Are you getting what you want when it comes to sex? Odds are, probably not. Most of us have sexual fantasies that we wish were part of our sexual reality; however, few of us have shared these desires with our partners, let alone acted on them, because fear, shame, and embarrassment are holding us back.

We need to move past sexual shame and learn to communicate our desires in order to establish happy and healthy relationships. Sexual communication has a number of benefits, from establishing greater intimacy and closeness to keeping passion alive for the long haul.

FULL TRAINING SCHEDULE:

Friday, May 3rd, 10am - 6pm

- Sexual fantasy vs. sexual desire: What’s the difference?

- The who, what, when, where, and why of sexual fantasies

- How and why fantasies differ across gender, sexual orientation, and age

- The science of sexual fantasy: The most common fantasies, where they come from, and what they say about us

- Reconceptualizing paraphilias: Which sexual desires are truly uncommon and when does a sexual fantasy or desire become a cause for concern?  

- Special Guest: Nicoletta Heidegger, LMFT

Saturday, May 4th, 10am - 6pm

- Sexual communication: Tips and icebreakers that will allow you to confidently begin a dialogue

- Making the leap from fantasy to reality: What do you need to know?

- Monogamy vs. consensual non-monogamy: What are the unique benefits and challenges of each, and how do you figure out which approach is right for you?

- Discussing fantasies and desires with partners: Risk vs. reward

- The secrets to relationship success: Getting the sex life and relationship you want

- Sexceptional Lecture with Dr. Justin Lehmiller & Sex Nerd Trivia (Bring your friends, partners and anyone else that wants to learn!)

THIS EVENT IS HELD AT DOUBLETREE BY HILTON, 6161 WEST CENTINELA AVENUE, CULVER CITY, CA 90230

Friday’s Special Guest- Nicoletta Heidegger Presents: Treating Minor Attracted Adults. There is a lack of preventive treatment or support for those living with pedophilic desires; many of us as health care professionals will not even work with this population. The dearth of support and services offered for minor attracted adults only further puts our community and our children at risk. Join in a conversation about how to work with minor attracted clients so we can take preventive measures to support everyone in our communities and give this stigmatized population a fighting chance.

RebelLOVE.jpg

He's back by popular demand with a GROUNDBREAKING training! Loveline co-host alongside Amber Rose, TV personality and Certified Sex Therapist, Dr. Chris Donaghue will deliver a BRAND NEW PROGRAM for the Golden Coast!

Multiple options available including California CEs & full AASECT Certification training for all educational hours

Join us on October 19th & 20th (up to 15 CEs) to learn about Embodied and Mindful body-centered practices and theory, to help clients learn to be in their bodies, as well as ways to enhance pleasure, tolerate more intimacy, heal simple sexual trauma, and reduce body and sex shame. The average person does not access or engage their full sexuality or sexual body and doesn’t know what fully integrated body or sexuality feels like. Most sex therapies keep us trapped in our heads and never help get us fully into our body or sexuality. Great sex and full intimacy is about letting go, surrendering to our whole body, and staying out of our heads.

The below video explains the part of the weekend that is on somatic sexuality!

Uploaded by The Sexual Health Alliance on 2018-10-11.
Dr. Chris Donaghue    is a Doctor of Clinical Sexology and Human Sexuality, Doctoral trained in Clinical Psychology, Licensed Clinical Therapist, and a Certified Sex Therapist and specializes in individual and couples/marriage therapy.

Dr. Chris Donaghue is a Doctor of Clinical Sexology and Human Sexuality, Doctoral trained in Clinical Psychology, Licensed Clinical Therapist, and a Certified Sex Therapist and specializes in individual and couples/marriage therapy.

The skills and theory of this training are somatic based, and focused on bodily events that shape the psyche and sexuality (sexual-relational exercises and touch work) for clients to do at home.  The work includes both Somatic sex therapy and mindfulness. 

We will focus on bottom-up processing (embodiment) and less on talking. The problem with standard “mindfulness” is it’s disembodied, and it keeps you in your head, because it's not a true body based practice.  Disembodied people doing mindfulness stay disembodied. Thus far mindfulness applied to sex doesn’t address or undue (sexual or body) shame or simple trauma either. 

 

This training is a trauma informed, intersectional, gender neutral, body and sex positive practice. 

SOMATIC WORK CAN HELP PEOPLE GAIN:

1. A better understanding of the sexual body, 2. Improved sexual and body communication skills, 3. Use of sex as a tool to connect, 4. Learning about your authentic sexual self, 5. Sexual and body confidence, 6. Removal of sexual anxieties, 7. Increased sexual pleasure, 8. Increased tolerance for intimacy.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1.     Describe the theory and purpose behind somatic sex therapy and bottom-up processing

2.     Assess the ways that disembodiment reduces sexual pleasure, maintains low levels of partner intimacy, and doesn’t allow sexual healing. 

3.     Discuss how touch and breath impact the nervous system and are a whole body tool for healing and reducing anxiety 

4.     Apply the tools and practices that break problematic sexual patterns, help clients get into their bodies, heal genital shame, engage authentic arousal patterns, and utilize their entire body sexually. 

5.     Explain mindful solo sex and partnered sex, embodied sexuality, and mindful porn use.

We have THREE NEW SPEAKERS joining this comprehensive somatic sex therapy training! Moushumi Ghose LMFT, Jamila Dawson LMFT, and Kayna Cassard LMFT will now be presenting on October 19th and 20th!
