This meeting is aimed at students and health professionals, doctors and psychologists,
who propose to work with couples and wish to obtain basic knowledge to
address sexual complaints, which frequently present themselves spontaneous or
covert in couples in therapy.

We know that, in addition to the complexity of the human sexual dimension, sex is a topic
wrapped in taboos and that, due to the poor training and preparation of professionals in undergraduate courses, it becomes an area of difficult approach in clinical practice and is therefore
often neglected.

The objective of this meeting is to develop skills to welcome, investigate and address
sexual complaints of the couple in therapy, to know strategies for intervention in the couple's sexuality, in addition to referral criteria to different specialists.
For this, we will address basic issues in sexuality, such as historical aspects and socio-cultural factors, anatomy and human sexual response, as well as sexual cognitive and behavioral processes. We will study the current definitions of sexual dysfunctions, fundamental concepts and techniques in sexual therapy that enable us to intervene in a more effective way, improving communication and sexual dynamics, promoting sexual health
and rescuing intimacy and sexual satisfaction of the couple.
