With Professor Brett Kahr

In this seminar, Professor Brett Kahr, one of the world’s leading researchers on the structure and function of sexual fantasies, will offer participants insights as to how we might address the private erotic lives of individual and couple clients in a more honest, more straightforward, and more clinically impactful manner.

The confidence to practise in this way will support therapists and counsellors, helping us to discover the often hidden, traumatic, unconscious foundations of sexual symptomatology, which often cause quite complex challenges for clients. Participants will be able to think about how clients might integrate and work through sexual difficulties, regardless of how theses traumata erupt among couples.

Kahr will share his clinical insights as Principal Investigator of the British Sexual Fantasy Research Project (2002-2008), in which he studied the private masturbatory and coital fantasies of over 25,000 adult participants, aged eighteen to ninety-plus years of age, in both the United Kingdom and in the United States of America, undertaken in collaboration with the international polling agency YouGov.

He will then explore key concepts, including the “intra-marital affair”, the “erotic tumour”, and the “conjugal aneurysm”. He will draw upon his multi-decade experience of treating couples to investigate the deep and often traumatic origins of sexual challenges within the relational context, examining the ways in which sadism enters the adult bedroom.

In speaking about these complex and often ignored topics, Professor Kahr will help us all to develop a greater capacity for “sexpertise” within our consulting rooms.
