Course Description

Interestingly, when a woman feels closer to her partner, she experiences less sexual distress about her impaired sexual functioning, which is an indirect protective outcome of marital intimacy.

We will explore theoretical models of sexual intimacy within long-term relationships and the somewhat divergent predictions they make.

We will posit these models against current research in the field of sexual psychology and marital therapy, e.g. social exchange theory, relationship permanence, medical approaches, attachment theory and behavioral approaches

Interventions to facilitate the creation of favorable relationship climate for increased sexual function will be discussed.
