Extraordinary Sex Therapy

Creative Approaches for Clinicians

How do we help our clients discover the depth and breadth of sexual healing? Extraordinary Sex Therapy offers a range of innovative health-based approaches and models to explore the complexities inherent in sexual pleasure and potential as well as in trauma, pain, and dysfunction. The practitioners whose work is represented here expand the clinical conversation about sex beyond performance goals and tread courageously into unquantifiable realms of sexual and relational desire, health, and transformation. All of these practitioners describe work that embodies therapeutic collaboration with their clients as they confront sexual concerns that include body image, emotions, meanings, and nuances of partner interactions along with the influence of neurobiology, language, gender, addiction, socioeconomics, and cultural conditioning about pleasure. Their interventions range from education, visualization, and role-play to identifying erotic archetypes, coaching about sensual touch, and using plant spirit medicines to activate imagination and spiritual connection. Their descriptions ring with singular authenticity, depending on their training and the particular clients and issues they address. Each practitioner provides clinical examples and techniques in enough detail so that readers can incorporate elements of these approaches into their own practices. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Sexual and Relationship Therapy.

Since primitive times, women have gazed over campfires, fumbled out of their bearskins and wondered how to best please their tool-wielding mates. Grunting males have offered little help or guidance for their eager-to-learn companions, instead occupying themselves with chest thumping, sports on cable and other testosterone-driven posturing. It took eons of Darwinian development for women to realize that the answers to their many questions were as close as the nearest telephone. Who better to unveil the mysteries of the he-man psyche that a woman's best friend, the master of clever and refined thinking, the gay man? He knows exactly when, where and how to elicit that ultimate ooh-ooh, because he knows all too well what he wants.

Weisheit der Wechseljahre

Author: Christiane Northrup

Publisher: Edel:Books

ISBN: 3898836835

Category: Health & Fitness

Page: 580

View: 2362

Der Klassiker der Gesundheitsliteratur komplett aktualisiert und überarbeitet! Christiane Northrup ist in den USA die Koryphäe auf dem Gebiet der Frauenheilkunde. Sie beschreibt offen, klar und einfühlsam die Veränderungen, die Frauen zwischen 40 und 55 erwarten. Dabei räumt sie gründlich auf mit der gängigen Vorstellung, dass sich hinter dem Begriff „Wechseljahre“ einfach eine Ansammlung körperlicher Probleme verbirgt, die – am besten mit Hormonen! – behandelt werden müssen. Die Wechseljahre sind vielmehr ein körperlicher und geistiger Umwälzungsprozess, der Frauen eine echte Chance zum Wachstum bietet – wenn es ihnen gelingt, auf ihre innere Stimme zu hören. Northrup deckt den Zusammenhang zwischen den Wechseljahren und dem emotionalen Leben einer Frau auf und beschreibt unter anderem, wie die Wechseljahre zu einer Verschiebung der weiblichen Prioritäten führen, wie Frauen klimakterische Beschwerden als Weckrufe ihres Körpers erkennen können, wie sich hormonelle Veränderungen auf die Sexualität auswirken, wie Frauen mit den Veränderungen ihres Äußeren umgehen oder sich vor Herzerkrankungen, Alzheimer und Krebs schützen können. Northrup ermutigt Frauen, die Botschaften ihres Körpers zu verstehen, die Wechseljahre als eine Zeit der positiven Energie zu begreifen und die wunderbare Kraft dieser Lebensphase für ihre persönliche Entwicklung zu nutzen. In der Neuauflage des Bestsellers hat Northrup die neuesten Studien und Fallbeispiele zusammengetragen und berichtet mit ihrer reichen Erfahrung aus ihrer Praxis.
