Many clients present with sexual concerns not diagnosable in the DSM-5, and such are sometimes not addressed in treatment manuals. Sex Therapy 2.0 will go beyond the basics of sex therapy to address how clinicians might work with common sexual concerns. This training will briefly review the basics of sex therapy (such as the Ex-PLISSIT model), and then cover three common sexual health concerns: desire discrepancy, out of control sexual behavior, and sexual health after infidelity.


1. Summarize the Ex-PLISSIT model of sex therapy 1.0.

2. Assist couples in navigating the common challenge of desire discrepancy.

3. Recognize the problems of and alternatives to “sex addition” and similar labels.

4. Help clients navigate sexual health after infidelity.
