Systems Approach to Couples Sexual Issues
June 2-6, 2014 * Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA
This course is intended to develop counselor proficiency in conceptualizing, assessing, and treating common sexual issues of couples from a multi-level systemic perspective. Taught by Michael Sytsma, PhD, the class will include:
  • A review of Systems theory and approaches (including general systems, Internal Family Systems, Ecological Systems, Natural Family Systems, and Structural Systems Theories)
  • A brief review of sex therapy essentials
  • Current systemic approaches to sex therapy
  • Assessing sexual issues through a systemic lens
  • Addressing couple sexual issues from a systemic perspective 

In the fall of 2013, the Institute for Sexual Wholeness went back to London, England for the fourth time. This time to teach an intermediate course to those who have previously taken the intro course there. In addition to a quick review, this course covered assessment from 6522 and all the dysfunction protocols from 7532. Sponsored by YWAM's Earl's Court Community Project, the class was organized by Richard & Michelle Lahey-James and held in the beautiful St. Barnabas Church in Kensington.
