Want to feel confident talking about sex with your therapy clients?

Of course you do! The real questions are: How? When? And then what?

Sex and sexuality are natural, healthy aspects of life yet few therapy training programs address sex and sexuality adequately or equip their graduates with immediately applicable, effective strategies for discussing sexual concerns with clients.

Some clients turn to certified sex therapists to discuss their concerns but there aren’t nearly enough specialists to help everyone who has a sex issue.

And actually, most clients don’t need a specialist. They need the therapist they already have: YOU! Your clients need you to be able to discuss sex and relational intimacy comfortably and skillfully, use effective treatment strategies, and confidently know when to refer to a specialist.

In this free workshop, Martha Kauppi teaches you how to get started.

Kelly Scharver

Couples Counselor (Virginia)

Martha has an incredible talent to teach complicated material in a digestible way. Every time I have heard Martha present, I have implemented what I have learned in my sessions right away. I am incredibly grateful for all I have learned from her and believe the couples I work with have benefited from all she has taught me.

Martha’s brief assessment is a fantastic tool. It helps me elicit crucial information and categorize a labyrinth of possible concerns regarding sexual interactions. My clients have stated that the questions are gentle and thorough, and allow them to focus on parts of their sexual interactions they have not even considered previously.

Rev. Erich Moraine

Certified IFS Practitioner

Martha’s brief assessment has become my go-to tool for initiating conversations around sexual challenges, and assessing the components. It gives me a clean, simple, easy-to-remember format. I also use it to to track my clients’ progress over time.

I have used Martha Kauppi’s brief assessment tool twice now with clients (since learning it yesterday) and IT’S LIKE MAGIC! Wow! So happy to have that — thank you, thank you!
