For many therapists, the first response to sexual issues in couples’ therapy is to outsource to a “specialist” in sex therapy. However, Dr. Shelley Green and Dr. Douglas Flemons feel that the therapeutic orientation that they both teach and practice is more than enough to also handle sex therapy cases. This podcast features a dynamic conversation around sex therapy from a brief, systemic perspective and the ways in which this lens can change the focus of sexual problems between couples resulting in positive and lasting results for clients.
Dr. Douglas Flemons, PhD,LMFT, is Co-Director of Context Consultants and Professor of Family Therapy at Nova Southeastern University. He is the author of books on hypnosis and therapy and a Clinical Fellow and Approved Supervisor in the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT).
Dr. Shelley Green, PhD, LMFT, is Co-Director of Context Consultants and Professor of Family Therapy and Director of Equine Assisted Therapy at Nova Southeastern University. She is coeditor of Quickies: The Handbook of Brief Sex Therapy and author of numerous articles in the areas of sexuality, HIV/AIDS, and clinical training and supervision.
