Recent research shows that Millennials aged 20-24 report having fewer sexual partners than their parents’ generation (born in the 60’s and 70’s) after the age of 18. However, 81% of college students report hooking up while at school. The gap between these statistics are reflected in Millennials’ strengths and challenges when it comes to committed longer term relationships.

The generation who grew up with online access to porn, blatant sexuality expressed in their media, as well as social media are expressing doubt and anxiety in therapy as they attempt to establish bonded coupledom that is at times similar to their parents’ marriages and at others a courageous path to forge new relational paradigms.

In this talk, Sari Cooper will discuss the trends she sees as a sex therapist working with single, dating, cohabitating, engaged and married Millennials who begin therapy with a sexual presenting problem.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • describe the statistics regarding trends and behaviors of Millennial clients
  • list reasons this particular cohort of young adults approach sexuality differently than cohorts that are older
  • develop hypotheses taking into account the systems influencing these clients
  • identify potential blind spots they may have around Millennial clients’ sexual priorities

How these relational issues get expressed by clients with partners, how they may play out inside and outside the bedroom, and blind spots therapists may have to these conflicts will be addressed in this talk.

Therapists’ potential discomforts, beliefs and triggers to these sexual and erotic issues will be addressed. Alternative theoretical frames to consider will also be presented. Composite case examples will include heterosexual and LGBTQ clients in addition to clients from diverse ethnic and religious communities.
