Shaking up the Sexual Gridlock

All couples deal with the painful process of initiation and mismatched desire in the course of their relationship. Listen as Dr. David Schnarch, author of Intimacy and Desire: Awaken the Passion in Your Relationship and The Passionate Marriage offers time tested wisdom to make your relationship the people growing mechanism that it is. Through insightful case studies and helpful exercises,  Dr. Schnarch unravels the gridlock that common sexual issues of boredom and low libido create.

Dr. Schnarch is a licensed clinical psychologist, internationally recognized expert on relationships and sexuality, and the founder of Crucible® Therapy, an integrated treatment for sex, intimacy, and relationship problems, an approach which is studied by clinicians around the world.

Crucible® Therapy differs from conventional couple’s therapy by emphasizing personal growth (“differentiation”) rather than communication skills, empathic listening, or compromise and negotiation. Differentiation-based Crucible Therapy teaches couples to tolerate the anxiety of communicating difficult things, while soothing one’s own emotional state which results in the ability for each partner to grow individually and becoming more skilled at growing a relationship.

Developing deep and meaningful intimacy with your partner starts with growing yourself.  Don’t miss this enlightening and helpful discussion on learning the basics of loving.

Yes, Teresa, I'm sure the entire world agrees with you that personal growth and passionate marriage is "very disgusting". You might try actually reading the article before commenting with your standard vague meaningless comment just to score 20 butterfly points. Even your Catholic Church says sex is a gift from God. "Male and female, He created them." "Be fruitful and multiply." "And they were naked and not ashamed." "And they became one flesh." "And God saw that it was very good." Catechism section 2333 Everyone, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity. Catechism section 2335 Each of the two sexes is an image of the power and tenderness of God.
