Through discussions, Dr. Kasper and I realized there was a lack of training opportunities for female therapists to explore and understand their own reactions and experiences with desire, sex, power and control. Using our experience, training & research, we found that if therapists increase their own understanding and comfort with these feelings, they will be more effective in helping clients do the same. We created the Women, Sex + Power collaboration to address this need. We co-led a workshop at the 2016 American Group Psychotherapy Association's (AGPA) annual conference on Women, Sex + Power which was incredibly well attended and showed us how hungry women are to explore this topic. We have been invited to conduct the workshop again at the 2017 AGPA annual conference in New York.
