INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SEXOLOGY
Scientific Direction: DANIEL GIUNTI
33 hours of training
20 international speakers
Access to recordings for 12 months
The conference will present an overview of the various topics and scientific evidence on sexuality and relationships in their many facets.
A panel of national and international experts will present the state of the art on the subject, enriching it with contributions from their own scientific research and clinical and professional activities.
The topics covered will range from homophobia among professionals to the international view on topics such as gender fluidity, sexual addiction, desire, sexual fantasies and much more. We will also see what correlations there are between the psychic relationship and sexuality and between emotional dependency and betrayal situations.
The aim of the conference is therefore to provide professionals with up-to-date knowledge, enabling them to approach their clinical practice with greater awareness and competence.

Sexual Betrayal and Abuse of Boys and Men
Richard Gartner, Training and Supervising Analyst & Founding Director of Sexual Abuse Service
Does the precocialization of childhood experiences lead to debuts in sexuality earlier or later than in previous generations? Are adolescents still interested in sex? Has interpenetrating each other's bodies become secondary to interpenetrating each other's minds, in a society where being thought of and "living" in the minds of the peers increasingly matters? Is fluidity in choices a signal of discomfort or a new normality? From these questions, some reflections will be proposed around the theme of the relationship entertained by today's adolescents with their bodies, sexuality and others.
The presentation will provide an approach to fatphobia: what is it? and the four aspects of fatphobia: Fat shaming, diet culture, thin privilege and weight stigma. Furthermore, why is it important to increase awareness about this topic? In the end, the presentation will focus on the impact fatphobia has on the relationship with patients and how to work with them.
This presentation is aimed to define and critically analyze the various proposals for diagnosing the different expressions of affective and relational addictions, from romantic addictions to family, friendship and professional addictions. It will also explain the main etiological and progression hypotheses currently found in the scientific literature of psychological orientation, finally leading to a description of the most recent intervention protocol proposals for individual, dyadic or group treatment of the various affective addictions.
The presentation aims to help clinicians understand sexual addiction beyond the diagnostic framework, taking into account the patient's motivational systems and interpersonal cycles, and providing insights for psychotherapeutic intervention.
Recent years have witnessed an important transformation in the erotic-sexual sphere. Both from a scientific point of view and in terms of cultural change, sexuality seems to be moving towards a freer dimension, freed from taboos and false beliefs.
Couples, or at any rate relational experiences in the sexual sphere, are discovering the playful and gratifying side of transgression. How capable are partners of representing this transformation, avoiding the risk of weakening and misunderstandings?
Living and expressing emotions, representing, communicating and validating the experience, even atypical, of eroticism are some of the aspects that clinicians should not underestimate during the pathways of growth and restructuring of the self in the couple. Allowing a new vision of eroticism and sexuality can only confirm the constructive and functional thinking of sexpositivity.
