The majority of pelvic floor disorders are associated with sexual dysfunction
and have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. Many people do not realize pelvic floor dysfunction can affect women, men, transgender and gender nonconforming persons as early as childhood and through the end of life. Studies show that medical professionals, including primary care physicians, gynecologists, and urologists, are unfamiliar with pelvic floor dysfunction and are uncomfortable speaking to their patients about sex. This renders patients under-diagnosed, misdiagnosed, and frustrated. Pelvic floor dysfunction is treatable and proper management will help people restore their pelvic health and improve their quality of life.

Now, more than ever, our field must support methodological approaches that foster the repair of disconnection. We aim through this conference to highlight both the science and practice of how embodied self-awareness promotes this capacity for connection in both our clients and ourselves. We seek to highlight relational approaches to body psychotherapy that galvanize the restorative properties of our innate vitality.
Speakers will include but not be limited to topics such as embodied approaches to relational trauma, vitality, the use of movement in psychotherapeutic praxis, working with infants in clinical settings, sexual health and vitality, interpersonal neurobiology and more. The conference will feature speakers from wide intersections of our field from Reichian analysis, bioenergetics, Hakomi, Somatic Experiencing, Focusing, and more!
