2018 AASECT ANNUAL CONFERENCE

JUNE 14 - 17, 2018 | DENVER, CO

As couples face the reality of fertility challenges, men are often resistant to seeking support and psychological help. Couples struggle as sex and intimacy become transactional as they get further into their fertility protocols and are left without knowing how to remain connected and unified. More often than not, the female partner will find ample supports as the primary medicalized patient, leaving a male partner to fend for himself. In nonheteronormative couples, finding meaningful supports is even more confusing!

In his session, Elliott will identify strategies to engage clients in a conversation about the importance of support for men and couples in the fertility process.
