What’s sex got to do with it?
Sexuality was once at the very heart of Reichian and neo-Reichian models of psychotherapy and health. This seems often to no longer be the case. This workshop will afford us as a group an opportunity to consider the reasons and the consequences for the frequent marginalization of sexuality in contemporary psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.
Each of us may have experiences of our bodies—our identities and sexualities—that are so private and delicate that we can find it nearly impossible to speak of them to anyone. Some of us may have one or two trusted people with whom we can talk of these matters. This is often true for clients and professionals alike. Yet how can we learn to discuss these important dimensions of human life at professional and community levels where meaning is also made, where behaviors are deemed permissible or forbidden, and where identity is often shaped through countless, complex interactions?
This two-day, experiential workshop is intended for a community of professionals who want to develop a way to talk, collectively, about sexuality, sexual identities, and preferences—of which gender is often a central aspect. We will acknowledge the important role of the family and community in structuring the intensity of sexual passions, which may include biases against certain forms of love, sexual preferences, and gender orientations. We will begin to identify the issues related to gender and sexuality that we often find ourselves avoiding or that we may have no idea how to address. In this workshop we will explore the meanings of sexuality, aggression, transgression, and excess.
