We will explore the following topics: The anatomy and physiology behind all conflict How to apply specific tools for transformation, including: You will leave this training with solid power tools, and the confidence in how to use them, so that you’re ready to run couples sessions that create immediate change and enliven and inspire you, the practitioner. Dr. Julie Colwell has seen hundreds of couples over three decades, as well as teaching many workshops and classes. She has written three books (The Relationship Ride, The Relationship Skills Workbook, and the Inner Map) addressing power dynamics in relationships–and how to work with them directly and effectively. She is the founder and director of the Evolutionary Power Institute, where she and other faculty teach tools enabling anyone to recognize and move out of the reactivity that underlies all power struggles, then follow a clear path back to the creativity and collaboration that is the natural state of humans.

Sexuality is a complex and highly socialized aspect of being a fully social, vibrant, and creative human being. But the misinformation, shame, lack of consent culture, and early wounding often lead sex/ual/ity to be a source of great difficulty and disconnection. This course offers an integrated, socially-just, and trauma-informed method to support your client's sexual and intimate lives. With the foundation of Sex Therapy with Somatic Psychotherapy and Dance/Movement Therapy, this method integrates the many layers of the self to create an embodied relationship with sex/ual/ity. Participants will learn to assess the relationship between the somatic self and all the important social arenas that influence how we inhabit and express ourselves and offer somatic-based interventions that increase awareness and create action steps toward integration and relational healing. Over 2 weekends and a zoom consultation groups in between, you will learn how to incorporate somatic sex therapy into your work with clients through presentation of the theory, experientials, group discussion, and practice.
