Dr. Z spoke on "Common Blocks to Sexual Intimacy: Reestablishing the Connection" at the Harvard Couples Conference on November 1, 2019.  The reviews were fantastic.

She just returned from two days of teaching for Sex Therapy New Zealand on March 10 and 11, 2020 in Auckland, New Zealand. Her talks were very warmly received.

Her two speeches to the Maine Association of Psychiatric Physicians (MAPP), previously scheduled for April 2020 have been (hopefully) moved to October 8 and 9, 2020. The speeches are entitled "Maintaining a Healthy & Happy Sexual Relationship in Long-Term Monogamy" and "Sex after Trauma: Working with Survivors and their Partners".

Lastly, looking far ahead, she will be featured as one of the seven  Master Couple Therapists  in Therapy Training Boston’s Monthly Masters Series in Couple Therapy: Seven More Approaches to Interviewing in May 5, 2021, talking about "Recognizing and Working with Couples with Developmental Sexual Trauma." Learn more about the series at 

Some of the other professional organizations she has spoken to include Harvard Medical School/Cambridge City Hospital Conference Series, The Society for Sex Therapy and Research, New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation, Infertility Association of Canada (Keynote), RESOLVE of Illinois (Keynote), Boston Hospital’s Prostate Cancer Support Group, University of Massachusetts Department of Psychiatry Grand Rounds, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital Core Curriculum in Adult Primary Care, Massachusetts Psychological Association, RESOLVE of Northern California (Keynote and other talks), The Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health Annual Meeting (x3), Nurse Practitioners for Continuing Medical Education National Conference on Women’s Health, American Psychological Association National Meeting, and the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists Annual Meeting (countless times...)

In her speeches to the public, she is perhaps best known for her “aliveness” and her message of the surprising power of using basic human warmth, touch, empathy, optimism and humor in solving difficult problems, surviving and thriving. She brings all of her professional wisdom to her speeches, as well as her personal experience of infertility, pregnancy, motherhood, work/life balance, marriage, illness, and caretaking.
