A surrogate partner is one member of a three way therapeutic team which is made up a therapist, client and of course the surrogate partner.
The surrogate is selected or qualified to work as one based on certain life experiences and qualities which seem to provide valuable contributions to surrogate work. The surrogate, as a part of the therapy will assist the client as a partner, to enhance the clients physical and emotional intimacy skills. The therapist will be a certified qualified professional who will be guiding the process.
The therapy of course is for clients who are found to be lacking in their skills and not those who want to shoot pigeons to improve their aim.
Referrals training support and education is provided by the International Professional Surrogates Association. More on them at www.surrogatetherapy.org
