'In The Footsteps of the Fathers'

Book cover image

Co-authored by Course Director Judi Keshet-Orr

In the Footsteps of the Fathers: Psychosexual therapy with the Orthodox Jewish community - an overview from the therapist's chair...

"Judi Keshet-Orr is a renowned teacher and trainer of psychosexual therapy and has probably trained more psychosexual therapists from the U.K. and worldwide than anybody else in Britain. This book is for all therapists....... I found it a fascinating read.."

  - Margaret Ramage Fellow UKCP and COSRT

"....a book written with sensitivity....a long overdue book....we hope this book will become a textbook to which every psychosexual therapist will have easy access"

  - Rabbi Joel and Ruthie Portnoy Israel


"It is a truth increasingly (if not universally) acknowledged, that therapists need to take account of the historical, cultural, religious and contemporary worlds of their clients. Judi Keshet-Orr draws on her academic research and vast experience as a therapist and trainer to provide clear descriptions of Orthodox beliefs and practices. Especially illuminating are the sections on Orthodox law, including teachings on sex, morals and ethics."

New Course
DIPLOMA IN PSYCHOSEXUAL AND MARRIAGE THERAPY

Photographs of LDPRT Alumni

For many years now the Orthodox communities in the UK and further afield have acknowledged the lack of marriage counsellors and therapists for the community and provided by observant counsellors within the community. Several years ago a pilot programme was run successfully at a Fertility Service for the community in London, with the support of its Dayan. Most of its graduates have become qualified marriage counsellors with the inclusion of problems presented within marriage including those of an intimate nature. We shall commence such dedicated training for the community as a whole will commence in London, from June 2020 and we have enlisted the support of Rabbi Mordechai Nissim as course consultant.
