Marital/Sexual Problems

Couple or relationship problems that can affect sexual interaction includes pervasive hostility, poor communication, lack of trust, and altered levels of sexual desire.

We at MANN CLINIC educate our clients about the problem area and guide them in overcoming sexual anxiety. Sexual dysfunction, such as erectile dysfunction in men, and orgasmic dysfunction in women, cause much psychological stress, both to the person with the dysfunction and to his or her partner.

These dysfunctions are also a primary reason that couples seek counseling. Although these dysfunctions have been around for quite some time, the psychological understanding of sexual dysfunctions is relatively new. As with much of psychology, clinicians used Freud’s theories to explain sexual behaviour. Sexual dysfunctions were seen as pathological in nature and there was little distinction between difficulties in function and sexual perversions.

Sexual dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction, then, involves difficulties with desire, arousal,orgasm and in women also include sexual pain disorders. Another important factor in assessing sexual dysfunctions is the determination of whether such a dysfunction is purely physical or whether there are psychological factors.

There may also be a combination of the two, such as Male Erectile dysfunction, Premature Ejaculation, Male Orgasmic dysfunction (Retarded Ejaculation), Female Orgasmic dysfunction, Female Sexual Arousal dysfunction, Dyspareunia/ Vaginismus Sexual Desire dysfunctions.

Therapies for Sexual disorders

Any therapeutic intervention for sexual dysfunctions begins with an assessment of what underlies the condition. In the case of a psychological cause, therapy is indicated.

Behavior Therapy

The premise of behaviour therapy is that sexual problems are the result of prior learning and that they are maintained by ongoing reinforcements and punishments. A key technique is systematic desensitization in which the client is led through exercises to reduce anxiety.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

It is a therapeutic process that attempts to change feelings and actions by modifying or altering faulty thought patterns or destructive self verbalizations. Cognitive restructuring is particularly appropriate in situations in which negative attitudes towards sexuality contribute to sexual dysfunction.

Couple Therapy

The goal of couple therapy is to address interpersonal issues in the relationship. Common interpersonal conflicts include relationship conflicts, extra-marital affairs, current physical, verbal or sexual abuse, sexual libido/ desire or practices different from partner, poor sexual communication.

In couple therapy, partners focus on resolving relationship issues, resolving conflicts and enhancing their relationship. Communication is also a key aspect of couples counseling. Communication training helps couples learn how to talk to one another, demonstrate empathy, resolve differences with respect for each others feelings, express anger in a positive wayand demonstrate affection. Couples are also helped to learn to reserve time for activities together.
