Sign Up! Free Webinar > – What’s Eating You? The Connection Between Nutrition and Mental Health

  • Do your eating habits and choices really have a profound effect on your mental and physical health?
  • What is the connection between living healthy and eating healthy?
  • How can this information be used to support your clients in the mind-body paradigm?

Clients, and often practitioners, may discount or overlook the influence of nutritional habits and behaviors as a dimension of exploration in building a more satisfying, enjoyable lifestyle in love, connection, and intimacy. Understanding that connection can provide a client with additional tools to enhance a client’s situation. As a clinician or somatic practitioner, understanding the role that nutrition plays in mental and physical fitness can benefit your clients.

Watch Video > : “Male Surrogates: Supporting Women in the Expanded Triadic Model”

  • How can the needs of male and female clients differ?
  • How can these differences impact the therapeutic approach and structure of treatment plans in Surrogate Partner Therapy?
  • Given these differences, how should we adapt our approach to support women in the SPT model?

Surrogate Partner Therapy (SPT) is still perceived by many as primarily a female-surrogate, male-client modality. However, women often find themselves facing significant challenges with sex and intimacy as well. As a result, some women may choose to disengage from their sexuality rather than confront and address these challenges.
During this webinar, join Dr. Kaye and a male surrogate partner practitioner as we share some of the realities of supporting female clients in the context of SPT. We will describe some of the common challenges, provide information on available resources, and share experiences as we delve into the exploration of that age-old question: What do women really want?

Watch Video > : “A team of three – Supporting your clients by working with other professionals”

Originally broadcast on Thursday, July 21, 2016

One of the most important distinctions your clients can make is this difference. For one, the need for touch is a different need than the need for sexual expression, and once you can take them apart, they can meet each of those needs more authentically. On this call, we’ll talk about that difference, what the needs actually are and how to help your client (and maybe yourself) be able to tell the difference and actually meet the needs.

For most people, this means being able to experience touch that is not about sex – and doesn’t feel like sex – which for many people is even more frightening than sex. It opens a different door in the heart, and often a more vulnerable one.

Watch Video > : “Marcella Lyles – The Skin Hunger Project”

Originally broadcast on February 18, 2016

The mission of “The Skin Hunger Project” is to bring awareness, acceptance and advocacy to the issue of Skin Hunger. This conversation will be an exploration in the groundbreaking work we hope the Project will accomplish. Our goal is to support and promote the collaboration of Participants and Practitioners, Educators, Scientists and Social Media outlets in their efforts to powerfully address Skin Hunger.

Skin Hunger: (n) The experience and expression of negative emotions and behaviors that result from a lack of touch.

Much like the body needs water and food to survive, the need for touch is very real and important. It is said that in order to survive, human beings need at least 4 hugs/acts of touch a day. For optimal care, it is suggested that those hugs/acts of touch should last no less than 5 minutes to allow for the creation of Oxytocin, which causes a sense of relaxation, connection and healing. While 4 hugs/acts of touch are needed for survival, 8 hugs/acts per day are required for optimal maintenance and 12 daily hugs/acts are needed for the person to grow and thrive. This means, that even if people are getting some touch they may not be getting enough touch to prevent the negative impacts of Skin Hunger.
