Join us for Sexual Hijackers—The Wrecking of Intimacy, a 3 CEU workshop at the 36th Annual Transformation and Healing Conference at the New Earth Institute of Southwestern College, Santa Fe.

This workshop will outline how sexuality can get hijacked by early childhood experiences and lead to a spectrum of personal challenges that range from dangerous sex addiction to intimacy disorder. We will cover normal sexual development then look at some very common hijackers that create early sexualization and long-term effects. These hijackers include overt sexual abuse and covert incest to porn and our current commercialized culture. We will explore how these influences and experiences can create arousal templates or aversions that interfere with true intimacy and healthy sexuality. We will also cover some helpful therapeutic interventions to support change and recovery for clients and ourselves from compassionate humanistic and cognitive-behavioral perspectives.
This workshop is for anyone who wishes to understand intimacy in relationships.
The teaching methods to be employed will include some lecture, discussion, collaboration, writing and art making.
