Individuals and couples have many misguided beliefs and expectations regarding sex and intimacy that can negatively impact their well-being and their relationship. As we get older, struggle with an illness, or experience a decrease in physical or sexual functioning, we and/or our partner can fall short of these expectations, which often lead to feelings of pain and disconnection. In this presentation Dr. Lori Buckley will address relationship and sexual concerns, and will give practical tips, ideas and techniques to enhance your relationship and your sex life.
