Content and Aim: Surrogate partner therapy (SPT) was first introduced to sexual therapy by Masters and Johnson (1960). SPT raises ethical, cultural, legal, as well as controversy among professionals in the field of sexuality, it is performed in different ways in few countries such as USA, England, Australia, The Netherland, Germany as well as Israel.
Observing SPT from a rehabilitation point of view, it is a form of mentoring which helps patients in a “one on one” experience when we the therapist cannot be there to direct and support; it also provides “an on-site feedback” for those who need it, those that will not move forward without it. SPT also provides the therapist with an additional perspective on our patients who comprehend the situation in a way that holds them back.
In this webinar, we will try to uncover myths and fears while working with this powerful and effective therapeutic tool. Case studies will be discussed, and provide a better understanding of the therapeutic process working with the “Triangle Model of Patient – Surrogate – Therapist”. Participants will be able to differentiate between those that can benefit from SPT and those who don’t.
Prof. Rafi Heruti will attend the webinar to reply to queries concerning medical issues.
