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.

Jay Stringer

Jay is a licensed mental health counselor, researcher, and author of the award-winning book Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing. Unwanted is based on a research on nearly 4,000 men and women exploring the key drivers beneath unwanted sexual behaviors like the use of porn and extra-marital affairs. Stringer holds an MDiv and Master in Counseling Psychology from the Seattle School of Theology. Jay lives in New York City with his wife Heather and their two children.

Sheila Wray Gregoire

Sheila Wray Gregoire is the author of eleven books including The Great Sex Rescue, the host of the Bare Marriage podcast, and the founder of To Love Honor and Vacuum. An award-winning writer, Sheila calls the church to more than just pat answers by conducting original research to find out what advice works–and what really doesn’t. Sheila and her husband Keith have been married for over 30 years. Together they have two adult daughters, one son in heaven, two sons-in-law, and two adorable grandchildren. And Sheila knits. Even in line at the grocery store.

Adam Young

Adam is a trauma therapist, and the host of The Place We Find Ourselves podcast. He lives in Fort Collins, Colorado, with his wife Caroline and two children. Adam is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with a Master degree in Social Work (Virginia Commonwealth University) and Divinity (Emory University).
