In this webinar entitled Women’s Intimacy & Relationship Issues in Adulthood, we will examine the struggles and dilemmas of young women through midlife.

Specifically, we will explore issues such as pregnancy and post-partum physical relationships and partner effects of parenting on intimacy. We’ll also look at the surprising effects of COVID-19 quarantine on relationships, the global shift in attitudes toward monogamy, and the rise in infidelity among women. Additionally, we’ll discuss the symptoms of ‘second adolescence’—a developmental stage seen in both partners that can be a creative, liminal space, or a cause of conflict and divorce.

Attendees will learn about the contemporary issues of women as well as the interventions and strategies that must be applied therapeutically to incorporate their fast-paced real-life system.

At the conclusion of the workshop, attendees will be better able to–

  • Understand the problem of living with too much information—the ‘tyranny of choice’ 
  • Discuss strategies that demonstrate patience and curiosity about the process of therapy with mired young women
  • Learn and practice the React-Reflect-Respond model
  • Increase comfort with identity conversations to include the role of therapist power and privilege
  • Understand three causes of perfectionism in high functioning young adult clients and how to help them work through their challenges
  • Learn why clients get stuck in the cycle of perfectionism and how to finally break it
