We will explore

Attachment Styles

Sexual Arousal Maps

Transforming Your Story

About the Conference

At some point in our lives, each of us will encounter difficulties in our sexual life. It might be a compulsive use of unwanted sexual behavior or a struggle to locate any sexual desire at all. No matter what sexual story you find yourself in, this conference will guide you to identify the key attachments that keep you stuck. Sexual desire issues are common, but they can also be a roadmap to healing.

Through the teaching of therapists Jay Stringer and Adam Young, you will learn:

  • How to identify your attachment style
  • How attachment shapes your sexual life
  • How to understand your arousal template
  • How to transform your sexual story
This virtual conference is designed for men and women, couples, and small groups who are hoping to connect the dots between unresolved pain and unwanted choices.
