Program Overview
Did you ever wonder“if intimacy is so easy, why are so many books about it”? Or“why does everyone else know exactly what to do and I’m the only one with questions”? Well, you’re not alone.

This is especially true when you are living with a disability. How do I express my needs? How can I share my desires with my partner? So many people find it difficult to talk about with their partner/loved one.

This webinar answers some of those questions and more. Join us for an interesting, informative and entertaining conversation for couples addressing sexuality, sensuality, intimacy and communication.

Presenter:Eva Margot Kant, LCSW is a speaker, educator and clinician in private practice. Ms. Kant is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service.
