Winter Program Sunday, January 10, 2021—Zoom Webinar
Navigating the Challenges of Changing Bodies:  Dealing With Sexuality Through the Life Cycle

Presenter:  Daniel N. Watter, Ed.D.


As people are living longer, concerns about quality of life have taken on an increasingly prominent place in the lives of our patients.  One of the most frequently expressed concerns/frustrations with aging is how to manage the sexual changes that naturally occur in an aging body.  Such concerns have implications for both levels of self-esteem and relationship/intimacy maintenance and enhancement.  The same can also be said for body changes throughout the lifespan, be they from aging, injury, pregnancy, or illness.  This presentation will address the myriad sexual dilemmas facing our patients as they deal with unwanted bodily changes, as well as suggest strategies the practicing psychologist can employ when working with such patients.


Dr. Daniel N. Watter received his doctoral degree from New York University in 1985, and has also earned a post-graduate certificate in

Medical Humanities from Drew University.  He is licensed as both a psychologist and a marital and family therapist.  In addition, he is Board Certified in Sex Therapy by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT), and the American Board of Sexology (ACS), of which is also holds Fellowship status.  Dr. Watter is an AASECT certified sex therapy supervisor, and has been elected to Fellowship Status in the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health (ISSWSH).

Learning Objectives:   This workshop is designed to help participants:

1.  Identify the sexual concerns common to psychotherapy patients’ changing bodies.

2.  Apply treatment strategies based on an existential-humanistic treatment model.

3.  Analyze the ethical conflicts presented in our current focus of treatment for this population.
